Subject Re: Range Slices timing question

get_range_slices is faster in 0.7 but there's not much you can do in 0.6.

domain/date (e.g. "!20100430/!A" "!20100430/!D"). I am looping in chunks
of 6000 rows / 500 cols at a time. However, it is taken in my 5 node cluster (each  machine
has 32gb in ram, RF=3 and OPP, v0.6.1) 36 secs to get all the required rows (stats below);
which I think it is a bit high. I am wondering if a possible cause it's the way my string
keys are constructed (suggestions are welcome) that makes Cassandra work 'harder' when doing
a 'range slices'. Does Cassandra examines all row keys to search for matches? Are there any
settings I can tweak to try to make the retrieval faster?
