Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-4416) Include metadata for system keyspace itself in schema_* tables
Date Mon, 01 Oct 2012 11:55:08 GMT


Sylvain Lebresne commented on CASSANDRA-4416:

nit: in SystemTable.finishStartup, the code currently tries to delete the keyspaces, columnsfamilies
and columns table from the system_trace keyspace too. It's harmless but useless so we might
want to add a 'if' or move the deletion outside the 'for'.

+1 otherwise.

> The `system.schema_keyspaces`, `system.schema_columnfamilies`, and `system.schema_columns`
virtual tables allow clients to query schema and layout information through CQL. This will
be invaluable when users start to make more use of the CQL-only protocol (CASSANDRA-2478),
since there will be no other way to determine certain information about available columnfamilies,
keyspaces, or show metadata about them.
> However, the system keyspace itself, and all the columnfamilies in it, are not represented
in the schema_* tables:
> {noformat}
> cqlsh> select * from system.schema_keyspaces where "keyspace" = 'system';
> cqlsh> 
> cqlsh> select * from system.schema_columnfamilies where "keyspace" = 'system';
> cqlsh> 
> cqlsh> select * from system.schema_columns where "keyspace" = 'system';
> cqlsh> 
> {noformat}
> It would be greatly helpful to clients which do more introspection than the minimum (say,
for example, cqlsh) to be able to get information on the structure and availability of schema-definition
