Subject Re: Searching rows for array of key values
Date Wed, 05 May 2010 18:24:24 GMT
Thanks for your response. I can make the array lexicographical. But the
array will not have all the values that are in the HBase table. The range
for scan can be from 1,000 to 10,000 and I can only have 1,000 keys in the
array, whereas HBase table has let's say 6,000 rows for that range. If I
use range scan then I need to loop thru the found rows and find the ones
that their key is in the requested array. Please let me know if there is any
other way to get just the rows that are needed in one shot. Otherwise I will
go with the range scan and looping method.

Thanks again.
