> Updating a CQL List many times creates many tombstones 
> -------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: CASSANDRA-10547
>                 URL:
>             Project: Cassandra
>          Issue Type: Bug
>         Environment: Cassandra 2.1.9, Java driver 2.1.5
>            Reporter: James Bishop
>            Assignee: Alex Petrov
>         Attachments: tombstone.snippet
> We encountered a TombstoneOverwhelmingException in cassandra system.log which caused
some of our CQL queries to fail.
> We are able to reproduce this issue by updating a CQL List column many times. The number
of tombstones created seems to be related to (number of list items * number of list updates).
We update the entire list on each update using the java driver. (see attached code for details)
> Running nodetool compact does not help, but nodetool flush does. It appears that the
tombstones are being accumulated in memory. 
> For example if we update a list of 100 items 1000 times, this creates more  than 100,000
tombstones and exceeds the default tombstone_failure_threshold.
