Subject Re: large Rows Vs multinodes ring
Date Mon, 18 Jun 2012 18:30:10 GMT
It's not an exact science. Some general guidelines though:

* A row normally represents an entity
* Rows wider than the thrift_max_message_length_in_mb (16MB) cannot be retrieved in a single
* Wide rows (in the 10's of MB) become can make repair do more work than is needed.
* Rows wider than in_memory_compaction_limit_in_mb (64) make compaction run slower
