Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-6477) Global indexes
Date Mon, 20 Apr 2015 16:56:09 GMT


Aleksey Yeschenko commented on CASSANDRA-6477:

bq. As a data point, my own preference would be to call them "denormalized views". As my preference
would go to never do the "only keys", I can agree that calling them "index" is a bit misleading.
But I can also agree that "materialized views" might confuse SQL users that might expect more
from them than what we'll offer. So granted "denormalized views" doesn't reference an existing
term but I see that as a feature. Plus denormalization is really what we're doing there so

Fair enough. I'd +1 that.

> 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.
