Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-4012) Load-from-flat-file data import tool
Date Wed, 07 Mar 2012 20:48:58 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-4012:

I'm fine doing this over python/cql, since we already ship that driver in-tree for cqlsh.
 I also don't think it needs to be ultra-high-performance, since by exporting it to a text
file first you're basically implying that

# performance isn't super critical, or you'd write a custom source -> cassandra loader
and skip the intermediate text file step
# you're not concerned with huge data volumes

So basically our target use case is "want to play with some toy data" or importing small datasets.
