Subject Re: Summarizing Timestamp datatype
Date Wed, 18 Jun 2014 02:22:09 GMT
That's how my schema is built. So far, I'm pulling the data out by a
range of 30 days.  I want to see if I have data for every day, just
wondering if it's possible in the CQL, as opposed to how i'm doing it
now, in python.
