Subject 答复: A difficult data model with C*
Date Wed, 09 Nov 2016 03:29:48 GMT
Hi Vladimir Yudovin,


    Thank you very much for your detailed explaining. Maybe I didn't describe the requirement
clearly. The use cases should be:

1. a user login our app.

2. show the recent ten movies watched by the user within 30 days.

3. the user can click any one of the ten movie and continue to watch from the last position
she/he did. BTW, a movie can be watched several times by a user and the last positon is needed
indeed.


BRs,

BEN

Hi Ben,

if need very limited number of positions (as you said ten) may be you can store them in LIST
of UDT? Or just as JSON string?
So you'll have one row per each pair user-video.

It can be something like this:

CREATE TYPE play (position int, last_time timestamp);
CREATE TABLE recent (user_name text, video_id text, review LIST<frozen<play>>,
PRIMARY KEY (user_name, video_id));

UPDATE recent set review = review + [(1234,12345)] where user_name='some user' AND video_id='great
video';
UPDATE recent set review = review + [(1234,123456)] where user_name='some user' AND video_id='great
video';
UPDATE recent set review = review + [(1234,1234567)] where user_name='some user' AND video_id='great
video';

You can delete the oldest entry by index:
DELETE review[0] FROM recent WHERE user_name='some user' AND video_id='great video';

or by value, if you know the oldest entry:

UPDATE recent SET review = review - [(1234,12345)]  WHERE user_name='some user' AND video_id='great
video';

Hi guys,

We are maintaining a system for an on-line video service. ALL users' viewing records of every
movie are stored in C*. So she/he can continue to enjoy the movie from the last point next
time. The table is designed as below:
CREATE TABLE recent (
user_name text,
vedio_id text,
position int,
last_time timestamp,
PRIMARY KEY (user_name, vedio_id)
)

It worked well before. However, the records increase every day and the last ten items may
be adequate for the business. The current model use vedio_id as cluster key to keep a row
for a movie, but as you know, the business prefer to order by the last_time desc. If we use
last_time as cluster key, there will be many records for a singe movie and the recent one
is actually desired. So how to model that? Do you have any suggestions?
Thanks!


BRs,
BEN
