Subject Re: How to get a list of keys of a CF?
Date Mon, 20 Sep 2010 21:35:02 GMT
use get_range_slices with either a SliceRange start="", finish="" and count=0 OR SlicePredicate
with column_names = []. This will return no columns. Not sure if the server will detect you
are asking for zero columns and take a more efficient path, however it will not return any
columns with the result. 

Note this will include keys for rows that only have deleted (tombstoned) columns.  Include
one column name if you want to test for tombstoned rows.

I need to get a list of all the keys of a particular CF. The API doc
indicates that "get_key_range" is gone now (I'm using 0.6.5), and that
I need to use "get_range_slices," which returns the list of keys and
their associated rows

Is this the only way to get the list of keys? It just seems a bit of
overkill to have to pull the entire row, or am I missing something?
