Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-7494) CQL support to return first column of each row
Date Thu, 03 Jul 2014 14:32:24 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-7494?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14051507#comment-14051507
] 

Samphel Norden commented on CASSANDRA-7494:
-------------------------------------------

Using a slice query with Hector/Thrift does support getting the first n cells of a row. If
a feature like this already exists, is there a specific reason why it cannot be ported over
to CQL.

> This jira is a request to support a query like
> select first 5 columns of each row where <whereclause>
> Currently in CQL, if we put a limit clause it applies over all rows. Not a per partition
key limit. 
> More details below
> IF we create a table as follows
> CREATE TABLE xy (
> a int,
> b int,
> c int,
> d int,
> value int,
> PRIMARY KEY ((a, b), c, d)
> ) WITH CLUSTERING ORDER BY (c DESC, d ASC)
> with data = 
> a | b | c | d | value
> --------------
> 1 | 2 | 2007 | 307 | 950
> 1 | 2 | 2006 | 305 | 900
> 1 | 1 | 1006 | 205 | 800
> 1 | 1 | 1005 | 105 | 700
> The rows are sorted by c descending where assuming c is a timestamp, the idea is to store
the latest timestamp first. Hence if we pull a single column from each row given a set of
rows, we want that to be the latest 'c' for each row.
> In other words: 
> select first 1 value from xy where a=1 and b in (1,2)
> should return a single "value" for each rowkey
> a | b | c | d | value
> --------------
> 1 | 1 | 1006 | 205 | 800
> 1 | 2 | 2007 | 307 | 950
> I realize that if we do individual queries such as
> select a,b,c,value from xy where a=1 and b =1 limit 1;
> a | b | c | value
> -------+----
> 1 | 1 | 1006 | 800
> (1 rows)
> cqlsh:> select a,b,c,e from xy where a=1 and b =2 limit 1;
> a | b | c | value
> -------+----
> 1 | 2 | 2007 | 950
> We get the desired result.However this is highly inefficient since we would need to fire
a separate query per row. If we can have a construct change to allow getting a single column
for a given row that would be very helpful
