Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-1278) Make bulk loading into Cassandra less crappy, more pluggable
Date Mon, 02 May 2011 13:22:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-1278?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13027646#comment-13027646
] 

Chris Burroughs commented on CASSANDRA-1278:
--------------------------------------------

bq. : the only blocker for doing this currently is that we need an estimated size to start
building the bloom filter, but I see multiple ways around that (including partitioning the
filter, which has other benefits: see CASSANDRA-2466).

There is literature on scalable or dynamic BloomFilters to do this in a mathematically sound
way.

> Currently bulk loading into Cassandra is a black art.  People are either directed to
just do it responsibly with thrift or a higher level client, or they have to explore the contrib/bmt
example - http://wiki.apache.org/cassandra/BinaryMemtable  That contrib module requires delving
into the code to find out how it works and then applying it to the given problem.  Using either
method, the user also needs to keep in mind that overloading the cluster is possible - which
will hopefully be addressed in CASSANDRA-685
> This improvement would be to create a contrib module or set of documents dealing with
bulk loading.  Perhaps it could include code in the Core to make it more pluggable for external
clients of different types.
> It is just that this is something that many that are new to Cassandra need to do - bulk
load their data into Cassandra.
