    Description

      ColumnFamilies may be added when cassandr is not running by editing the configuration file.

      If you need to delete or re-order CFs, you must

      1) kill cassandra
      2) start it again and wait for log replay to finish
      3) kill cassandra AGAIN

      Alternatively on Cassandra 0.4.2 or later:
      1) run nodeprobe flush and wait for it to finish
      2) kill cassandra

      Then:
      4) make your edits (now there is no data in the commitlog)
      5) manually remove the sstable files (-Data.db, -Index.db, and -Filter.db) for the CFs you removed, and rename files for CFs you renamed
      6) start cassandra and your edits should take effect
