to have such huge data set for one partition key in our case it is 300k rows only, but when
trying to query for one particular key we are getting timeout exception. If I use Spark to
get the 300k rows for a particular key does it solve the problem of timeouts and distribute
the data across the spark nodes or will it still throw timeout exceptions. Can you please
help me with the best practice to retrieve the data for the key with 300k rows. Any help is
highly appreciated.
