Subject Re: Region hot spotting
Date Wed, 21 Nov 2012 21:21:34 GMT
Salting is not a good idea and I don't know why people suggest it. 

Case in point.... you want to fetch a single row/record back. Because the salt is arbitrary,
you will need to send N number of get()s one for each salt value. 
Doing a simple one way hash of the data, even appending the data, would be a better idea.
Note that if you are worried about key length, you can do the hash and take the first N bytes
and then append the row to it. It should give you enough of a spread of hash values that you
don't have to worry about hotspots.
