Subject Re: limit the size of data type LIST
Date Fri, 14 Aug 2015 01:24:41 GMT
Sorry for not making myself clear and thank you for your reply.


I want to know if there is a way to automatically remove old items in the list in SERVER SIDE
if the size() of the list reached a certain limit(say 1000).

client does not need to care about this, and just do insert and get. and he will get the latest
1000 messages of a user?

can I?

This sounds like something you do on the client side BEFORE you insert. Or are you wanting
to limit the size of the list coming out to the client?

Subject: limit the size of data type LIST
hi, friends
I am design a message history table
CREATE TABLE message_history (
    user_name text PRIMARY KEY,
    time timestamp,
    message_details list<text>, 
so that I can query a user's message via primary key `user_name` at once.
but the item in `message_details` list may be very long so that I want to limit the list size
of the message_details list.
is there a way to solve this?
like a redis operation `LTRIM` - <>
