Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-11682) Explain hotspotting
Date Wed, 06 Aug 2014 16:13:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-11682?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14087839#comment-14087839

Nick Dimiduk commented on HBASE-11682:

bq. However, using totally random row keys for data which is accessed sequentially would remove
the benefit of HBase's row-sorting algorithm and cause very poor performance, as each get
or scan would need to query all regions.

Prefixing with random byte prevents any meaningful use of scans; gets become your only option.
This approach is indistinguishable from hashing the rowkey.

I like the rest of the updates, +1

Thanks a lot [~misty]!
