Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-7622) Implement virtual tables
Date Fri, 25 Jul 2014 17:15:39 GMT


Robert Stupp commented on CASSANDRA-7622:

So there would be two kinds of "vTables"? One that is consistent over all nodes (e.g. cluster
status) and one that has node-dependent values (e.g. configuration per node)? I'm not against
this one (it's great to have vTables) - but for example querying information from all nodes
could be very expensive large clusters (1000 nodes) - the coordinater would have to query
all 1000 cluster nodes. I guess that [~hayato.shimizu] had something like {{SELECT DISTINCT
seed_nodes FROM node_config}} in mind to find configuration mistakes.

> There are a variety of reasons to want virtual tables, which would be any table that
would be backed by an API, rather than data explicitly managed and stored as sstables.
> One possible use case would be to expose JMX data through CQL as a resurrection of CASSANDRA-3527.
> Another is a more general framework to implement the ability to expose yaml configuration
information. So it would be an alternate approach to CASSANDRA-7370.
> A possible implementation would be in terms of CASSANDRA-7443, but I am not presupposing.
