Subject Column family names and data size on disk
Date Wed, 28 Nov 2012 14:24:09 GMT

I am sort of wondering why does the Column Family name repeat inside the
HFile for every Key/Value pair. This repetition presumably implies that
column family names should be kept short and cryptic. Is it because an HFile
may contain Key/Value pairs for more than a single column family?

Just trying to improve my understanding of why and how HBase works... your
knowledgeable insight is most welcome.
