Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-7622) Implement virtual tables
Date Wed, 08 Jun 2016 15:11:21 GMT


Aleksey Yeschenko commented on CASSANDRA-7622:

Initially the ticket was about exposing configuration over CQL, not metrics. FWIW I'm not
convinced that exposing all metrics over virtual tables even makes sense.

bq. Yes please to scoping for read-only. Also, SHOW VARIABLES would be a cause for celebration
and cheer among our community of operations folks (would not even care about filtering for
first a first version either, just that we could get it).

Yes to both. Let's start with {{SHOW VARIABLES}} and go from there.

> There are a variety of reasons to want virtual tables, which would be any table that
would be backed by an API, rather than data explicitly managed and stored as sstables.
> One possible use case would be to expose JMX data through CQL as a resurrection of CASSANDRA-3527.
> Another is a more general framework to implement the ability to expose yaml configuration
information. So it would be an alternate approach to CASSANDRA-7370.
> A possible implementation would be in terms of CASSANDRA-7443, but I am not presupposing.
