Subject Re: How to choose BinId for Document partitioned index
Date Sat, 06 Feb 2016 17:25:54 GMT
Often it'll be a hash of the document mod the number of bins you're using.
The hash should be "good" in the sense that it uniquely identifies the
document. It can be as simple as some unique field in the document or just
a hash (like murmur) of the whole document.
