Subject [jira] [Created] (ACCUMULO-466) add a default constraint to limit the size of keys
Date Wed, 14 Mar 2012 15:54:42 GMT
add a default constraint to limit the size of keys

                 Key: ACCUMULO-466
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: master
            Reporter: Eric Newton
            Assignee: Eric Newton
             Fix For: 1.4.1

If a user mistakenly inserts extremely large keys, the tablet server will eventually run out
of memory just loading indexes.  This is almost certainly a mistake.  Add a constraint, by
default, to new tables, which will limit the size of a key to a megabyte, for example, to
catch these kinds of errors earlier.  If the user intends to use very large keys, they can
always remove the constraint.
