Subject A good key for data distribution over nodes
Date Mon, 10 Oct 2011 14:09:31 GMT

I am planing to make tests on Cassandra with a few nodes. I want to create a column family
where the key will be the date down to the second (like 2011/10/10-16:07:53). Doing so, my
keys will be very similar from each others. Is it ok to use such keys if I want my data to
be evenly distributed across my nodes or do I have to "do something" ?

Thanks in advance.
