Subject Re: Worst case #iops to read a row
Date Fri, 09 Apr 2010 15:39:26 GMT
worst case is 2 or 3, depending on row size:

one seek to read the right row index block
one seek to read the row header (bloom filter + column index)
if it's a big row, one seek to read the column block (block size is
configurable, default is 256KB)
