Subject Re: "timestamp" parameter for Thrift "insert" API ??
Date Mon, 20 Sep 2010 17:38:52 GMT
Consider situation when you have more Cassandra servers. It would require
time synchronization in Cassandra itself. So we have to have time
synchronization - on applications servers or Cassandra servers. I'm not sure
if this is concern of Cassandra but it would be good for me...
