@amit82ocp_172818 as @@brasco --Donnie Roberson-- indicated, you won't necessarily have SSTables if the node you flushed is not a replica of the data you inserted. Say you had a 3-node cluster and a keyspace with a replication factor of 3. In this configuration, all 3 nodes would be replicas so flushing on any node will have SSTables written to disk.
If you had a 3-node cluster but the keyspace only has a replication factor of 1, you would need to run
nodetool getendpoints to determine the owner of the partition and run a flush on that node to see SSTables on disk. Cheers!
