Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-6477) Materialized Views (was: Global Indexes)
Date Fri, 17 Jul 2015 21:44:09 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-6477:

I'm still skeptical that sync MV updates are useful.  I get that people would like to have
them, but it's a CAP problem.  You only get sync updates if you are willing to throw out availability
very very quickly.

So: we can keep sync as an option for the future, but for 3.0 we should not scope creep this.
 We have designed it as async which is the right thing for 90% of use cases and that is what
we should ship.

> 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.
