Subject ballpark low cardinality range for secondary indexes
Date Fri, 08 Apr 2011 14:53:35 GMT
I am trying to decide whether to use secondary indexes or use an inverted
index column family for a use case. Is there any suggested ballpark range
for low cardinality for which secondary indexes are suitable.
Meaning at what range should  using a secondary index be ruled in or out:
cardinality of tens, hundreds, thousands,millions?
I am not looking for any tested numbers a general suggestion/best practice
recommendation will suffice.
