Subject How does cassandra deal with collisions?
Date Fri, 30 Apr 2010 03:37:16 GMT
MD5 is not a perfect hash, it can produce collisions, how are these dealt with?
Is there a size appended to them?

If 2 keys collide, would that result in a merging of data (if the column names aren't the
same) or an overwrite if they were?
