Hi Team ,
I am trying commit log compression for dse 5.1.16,
how we can achieve and test commit log compression.
the default commit log location is `/var/lib/cassandra/commitlog`, in your case it may be configured to be different. After changing the settings (commitlog_compression) and restarting the database, you may check the difference there.
Compression settings for the commit log are documented here: https://docs.datastax.com/en/dse/5.1/dse-admin/datastax_enterprise/config/configCassandra_yaml.html#configCassandra_yaml__PerformanceTuningProps
Normal commit log is uncompressed, so it looks like that:
Notice that commit log compression may lead to a bit higher CPU load, I'd not set the compression level to be too high.
You could try to enable commit log compression on a single node and then compare it with the regular 'unchanged' node next to it.
