Subject Re: HBase schema for crawling
Date Sun, 05 Jul 2009 04:05:52 GMT
I have stored the spider time in a column like stime: to keep from having to 
fetch the pages content in the map of the row just for the timestamp
then just scan over that one column to get last spider time etc..

In my setup I did not spider from the map reduce job I build a spider
list then ran the spider in a different language that I know more about then
java so no experience with that.
