Subject How does Cassandra optimize this query?
Date Sun, 04 Nov 2012 18:49:48 GMT
If we create a column family:

CREATE TABLE videos (
  videoid uuid,
  videoname varchar,
  username varchar,
  description varchar,
  tags varchar,
  upload_date timestamp,
  PRIMARY KEY (videoid,videoname)
);

The CLI views this column like so:

create column family videos
  with column_type = 'Standard'
  and comparator =
'CompositeType(org.apache.cassandra.db.marshal.UTF8Type,org.apache.cassandra.db.marshal.UTF8Type)'
  and default_validation_class = 'UTF8Type'
  and key_validation_class = 'UUIDType'
  and read_repair_chance = 0.1
  and dclocal_read_repair_chance = 0.0
  and gc_grace = 864000
  and min_compaction_threshold = 4
  and max_compaction_threshold = 32
  and replicate_on_write = true
  and compaction_strategy =
'org.apache.cassandra.db.compaction.SizeTieredCompactionStrategy'
  and caching = 'KEYS_ONLY'
  and compression_options = {'sstable_compression' :
'org.apache.cassandra.io.compress.SnappyCompressor'};

[default@videos] list videos;

CQL3 Allows me to search the second component of a primary key. Which
really just seems to be component 1 of a composite column.

So what thrift operation does this correspond to? This looks like a
column slice without specifying a key? How does this work internally?
