Subject Sequential Inserts In HBASE.
Date Mon, 29 Nov 2010 12:30:35 GMT

Hi All, 
I'm new to HBASE. I understand that HBASE keeps its data sorted in the
filesystem. So when we insert randomly, it takes time to sort. Where as when
we insert sequentially, there is no need for HBASE to sort. 

But, i keep hearing from some of the users that, sequential inserts to HBASE
is the worst case thing. Why is that ?
