Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-7919) Change timestamp representation to timeuuid
Date Sat, 13 Sep 2014 16:17:33 GMT


Benedict commented on CASSANDRA-7919:

That is stale info, unfortunately :)

If we correct the risk of collision within a single application server, which is pretty essential,
our LSB will suddenly explode regardless of how static our client set-of-ips is so optimising
storage becomes impossible. And relying on a static client set-of-ips for performance is really
unpleasant, anyway. It would be a very strange scenario for users to discover that their database
performance degrades over time for reasons unrelated to their load.

That all said, if we promise to store (and deliver back to users) the _time_ component *_only_*,
I think we can do it.
