Subject understanding partitions and # of nodes
Date Wed, 21 Sep 2016 21:40:19 GMT

If you have a 10 node cluster, how does having 10 partitions or 100
partitions change how cassandra will perform?

With 10 partitions you will have 1 partition per node.
WIth 100 partitions you will have 10 partitions per node.

With 100 partitions I guess it helps because when you add more nodes to
your cluster, the data can be redistributed since you have more nodes.

What else are things to consider?
