Subject RE: hbase feature question
Date Sat, 17 Nov 2007 16:31:52 GMT
Currently, HBase supports specifying a maximum number of versions to
keep. Older versions are removed during compaction.

However, we do not currently support a TTL for columns. Please enter
a Jira using the component contrib/hbase and request a feature improvement.

Thanks.
