Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-7688) Add data sizing to a system table
Date Fri, 30 Jan 2015 21:29:35 GMT


Matt Byrd commented on CASSANDRA-7688:

So I suppose the reason for suggesting exposing the same call via cql, 
was that at least abstractly it was clear what this meant.
I concede that plumbing all this through might not be straightforward.

The problem with putting it in a system table is, what exactly do you put there?

The current computation is a somewhat expensive on demand computation that is generally done
relatively rarely.

Was your intent to just periodically execute this function and dump the results into system
Or did you have something different in mind?

a native protocol driver. is open to expose
easily getting ownership information to a client in the java-driver.  But you still need the
data sizing part to get splits of a given size.  We should add the sizing information to a
system table so that native clients can get to it.
