Subject Secondary indices: Why low cardinality?
Date Fri, 11 Mar 2011 06:43:03 GMT
There's pretty limited information on Cassandra's built-in secondary index
facility as is, but trying to find out why the secondary index has to have
low cardinality has been like finding a needle in a haystack..that is
floating somewhere in the Atlantic.


Can someone explain why low cardinality is advised for the secondary index?
Has this been confirmed by anyone else besides DataStax?
