Re: What happened in hlog if data are deleted cuased by ttl?
Yes, TTL deletions are done only during compactions. They aren't
"Deleted" in the sense of what a Delete insert signifies, but are
rather eliminated in the write process when new
storefiles are written out - if the value being written to the
compacted store has already expired.
