Subject CollationController not using collectTimeOrderedData
Date Tue, 24 Feb 2015 18:58:56 GMT
Hi all,

I'd appreciate some help with a Cassandra 2.1.2 issue I'm experiencing. I'm
running a query which looks like this:

CREATE TABLE single_row_fetch (id uuid PRIMARY KEY, data text)
SELECT data FROM single_row_fetch WHERE id = ?

When writing test data into this table, I disabled compaction. I then wrote
data for performed a flush, and then overwrote the data, and so on. I
varied the number of times the data was overwritten and flushed. This has
the effect of controlling the number of SSTables. However, given that the
table only has one non-key row, only a single SSTable will ever have the
most recent data for this row. I confirmed that the expected number of
SSTables were generated and the timestamps of the  are as expected.

However, when I run the query with tracing, I see that Cassandra still
reads from ALL of the SSTables via collectAllData in CollationController.
Given that this query only fetches a single column, I would expect this
query to take the collectTimeOrderedData code path and then only examine
the first SSTable after seeing that it contains the relevant data.

Any insights on why this is the case and it what situations I would get the
expected behaviour would be incredibly helpful!
