Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-4476) Support 2ndary index queries with only inequality clauses (LT, LTE, GT, GTE)

Jeremiah Jordan commented on CASSANDRA-4476:
--------------------------------------------

The issue is that you need to be able to keep saying "give me 3 more starting from where I
left off" and eventually get all of the values.

> Currently, a query that uses 2ndary indexes must have at least one EQ clause (on an indexed
column). Given that indexed CFs are local (and use LocalPartitioner that order the row by
the type of the indexed column), we should extend 2ndary indexes to allow querying indexed
columns even when no EQ clause is provided.
> As far as I can tell, the main problem to solve for this is to update KeysSearcher.highestSelectivityPredicate().
I.e. how do we estimate the selectivity of non-EQ clauses? I note however that if we can do
that estimate reasonably accurately, this might provide better performance even for index
queries that both EQ and non-EQ clauses, because some non-EQ clauses may have a much better
selectivity than EQ ones (say you index both the user country and birth date, for SELECT *
FROM users WHERE country = 'US' AND birthdate > 'Jan 2009' AND birtdate < 'July 2009',
you'd better use the birthdate index first).
