Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-6477) Partitioned indexes
Date Mon, 31 Mar 2014 15:03:22 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-6477:

This does mean that a tombstone is not "just a tombstone," i.e., we will have to keep all
tombstones of this time for gcgs or a similar period, not just "the most recent post-merge
tombstone" as currently.

But it should be relatively rare to have racing tombstones, so the penalty vs the status quo
is not actually large in practice.

> Local indexes are suitable for low-cardinality data, where spreading the index across
the cluster is a Good Thing.  However, for high-cardinality data, local indexes require querying
most nodes in the cluster even if only a handful of rows is returned.
