Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-1472) Add bitmap secondary indexes
Date Sun, 06 Mar 2011 02:19:45 GMT


T Jake Luciani commented on CASSANDRA-1472:

I'm definitely not wanting to boil the ocean here. We could take the easy approach but at
the cost of supporting something we know will soon change.  

Perhaps this should all go into another set of tickets that we make blockers to this issue.

Overall  I am thinking about our current file format issues and what we know we need: checksums
+ compression.  The lucene and compression code I mentioned is quite straight forward so I
think it would be pretty easy to get something working here, and it would serve as a basis
for our new sstable format whatever that ends up being or simply adding these features to
our current format.

The main blocker of this ticket is the avro dependency so just trying to get enough functionality
to support the most basics of a disk format here.

> Bitmap indexes are a very efficient structure for dealing with immutable data. We can
take advantage of the fact that SSTables are immutable by attaching them directly to SSTables
as a new component (supported by CASSANDRA-1471).
