      Description

      one DC has big sized hints(467G) and will use up the whole directory sooner or later and we need to delete it. I ran nodetool truncatehints but it's not working. I see from nodetool tpstats there is 2 active hintedhandoff and 40 pending as follows:

      HintedHandoff 2 40 0 0 0

      it seems like there is an issue with hintedhandoff which is hung and caused nodetool truncatehints not working.

      please advise!

      Thanks
