Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-5762) Lost row marker after TTL expires
Date Mon, 15 Jul 2013 14:16:51 GMT


Sylvain Lebresne commented on CASSANDRA-5762:

This is a rather annoying problem. To sum it up, if you TTL one column, the row marker is
ttled too, because we have no way to know that this is not the last live column in that CQL3
row, but then if there was other non-ttled columns, they will survive the death of the row
marker which breaks the invariant that a live row always has a row marker.

Tbh, I have a hard time coming with a way to fix this. And so the only workaround that comes
to mind would be disallow setting a TTL on an individual columns. That is, you'd have to update
all columns of the row to be able to use a TTL, which I hate because 1) it'll look random
syntax wise and 2) I'm convinced that being able to TTL individual columns in a row is useful.
