Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-8131) Short-circuited query results from collection index query

Catalin Alexandru Zamfir commented on CASSANDRA-8131:
-----------------------------------------------------

You probably don't get this too often, but we just got it fixed with the normal updates today.
I'd just wanna say: "Thank you!" if it means something to your team.

> After watching Jonathan's 2014 summit video, I wanted to give collection indexes a try
as they seem to be a fit for a "search by key/values" usage pattern we have in our setup.
Doing some test queries that I expect users would do against the table, a short-circuit behavior
came up:
> Here's the whole transcript:
> {noformat}
> CREATE TABLE by_sets (id int PRIMARY KEY, datakeys set<text>, datavars set<text>);
> CREATE INDEX by_sets_datakeys ON by_sets (datakeys);
> CREATE INDEX by_sets_datavars ON by_sets (datavars);
> INSERT INTO by_sets (id, datakeys, datavars) VALUES (1, {'a'}, {'b'});
> INSERT INTO by_sets (id, datakeys, datavars) VALUES (2, {'c'}, {'d'});
> INSERT INTO by_sets (id, datakeys, datavars) VALUES (3, {'e'}, {'f'});
> INSERT INTO by_sets (id, datakeys, datavars) VALUES (4, {'a'}, {'z'});
> SELECT * FROM by_sets;
>  id | datakeys | datavars
> ----+----------+----------
>   1 |    {'a'} |    {'b'}
>   2 |    {'c'} |    {'d'}
>   4 |    {'a'} |    {'z'}
>   3 |    {'e'} |    {'f'}
> {noformat}
> We then tried this query which short-circuited:
> {noformat}
> SELECT * FROM by_sets WHERE datakeys CONTAINS 'a' AND datakeys CONTAINS 'c';
>  id | datakeys | datavars
> ----+----------+----------
>   1 |    {'a'} |    {'b'}
>   4 |    {'a'} |    {'z'}
> (2 rows)
> {noformat}
> Instead of receveing 3 rows, which match the datakeys CONTAINS 'a' AND datakeys CONTAINS
'c' we only got the first.
> Doing the same, but with CONTAINS 'c' first, ignores the second AND.
> {noformat}
> SELECT * FROM by_sets WHERE datakeys CONTAINS 'c' AND datakeys CONTAINS 'a' ;
>  id | datakeys | datavars
> ----+----------+----------
>   2 |    {'c'} |    {'d'}
> (1 rows)
> {noformat}
> Also, on a side-note, I have two indexes on both datakeys and datavars. But when trying
to run a query such as:
> {noformat}
> select * from by_sets WHERE datakeys CONTAINS 'a' AND datavars CONTAINS 'z';
> code=2200 [Invalid query] message="Cannot execute this query as it might involve data
filtering and thus may have unpredictable performance. 
> If you want to execute this query despite the performance unpredictability, use ALLOW
FILTERING"
> {noformat}
> The second column, after AND (even if I inverse the order) requires an "allow filtering"
clause yet the column is indexed an an in-memory "join" of the primary keys of these sets
on the coordinator could build up the result.
> Could anyone explain the short-circuit behavior?
> And the requirement for "allow-filtering" on a secondly indexed column?
> If they're not bugs but intended they should be documented better, at least their limitations.
