Subject Re: Which key/value pairs are held in memory?
Date Thu, 01 Nov 2012 11:55:11 GMT
I believe only the tablet server which currently hosts the tablet which 
contains the key which you inserted will contain that pair in the 
in-memory map (memtable).

The pair hitting multiple loggers ensures that the data is not lost, but 
since a tablet is only ever hosted by one server at a time, the k/v pair 
is not placed into multiple servers' memory map.
