Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-6477) Global indexes
Date Wed, 15 Apr 2015 22:52:02 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-6477:

bq. we would need to have a single replica that we push all index updates through

You're right, that doesn't work.

bq. it would very difficult to determine whether a grouping of updates indicates simultaneous
updates or just a series of updates that happened to use the same values

I don't think that makes it not work.  Each of those values is a separate partition.  I think
we get the right answer if we just take the highest value for each partition and delete any
"ghost" entries that may have been missed.

> Local indexes are suitable for low-cardinality data, where spreading the index across
the cluster is a Good Thing.  However, for high-cardinality data, local indexes require querying
most nodes in the cluster even if only a handful of rows is returned.
