Subject Indexed Table in Hbase
Date Mon, 17 Aug 2009 14:08:56 GMT
Hi all ,

I have gone through the IndexedTableAdmin classes in Hbase 0.19.3 API ..  I
have seen some methods used to create an Indexed Table (on some column).. I
have some doubts regarding the same ...

1) Are these somewhat similar to Hash indexes(in RDBMS) where i can easily
lookup a column value and find it's corresponding rowkey(s)
2) Can i find any performance gain when i use IndexedTable to search for a
paritcular column value .. instead of scanning an entire normal HTable ..

Kindly clarify my doubts

Thanks in advance
