Subject Re: copy from one table to another
Date Mon, 09 Apr 2018 03:09:47 GMT
Thank you all

I need something like this:

insert into table test2 select * from test1 where partition_key='SOME_KEYS';

The problem with copying sstable is that original table contains some billions of records
and i only want some hundred millions of records from the table, so after copy/pasting big
sstables in so many nodes i should wait for a deletion that would take so long to response:

delete from test2 where partition_key != 'SOME_KEYS'

IMHO The best step by step description of what you need to do is here;page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels%3Acomment-tabpanel#comment-13488959

The only difference is that you need to copy data from one table only. I did it for a whole

You can use the same procedure to restore a table from snapshot from datastax webpage

Just two modifications.

after step 5, modify the name of the sstables to add the name of the table you want to copy

and in the step 6 copy the sstables to the right directory corresponding to the tale you want
to copy to.

Be sure you have an snapshot of the table source and ignore step 4 of course

You can copy hardlinks to ALL SSTables from old to new table and then delete part of data
you do not need in a new one.

If it for testing and you don’t need any specific data, just copy a set of sstables with
all files of that sequence and move to target tables directory and rename it.

Restart target node or run nodetool refresh

Is there any way to copy some part of a table to another table in cassandra? A large amount
of data should be copied so i don't want to fetch data to client and stream it back to cassandra
using cql.
