Subject Re: Essential column family performance
Date Tue, 09 Apr 2013 01:53:07 GMT
Good idea, Sergey. We'll rerun with larger non essential column family 
values and see if there's a crossover point. One other difference for us 
is that we're using FAST_DIFF encoding. We'll try with no encoding too. 
Our table has 20 million rows across four regions servers.

Regarding the parallelization we do, we run multiple scans in parallel 
instead of one single scan over the table. We use the region boundaries 
of the table to divide up the work evenly, adding a start/stop key for 
each scan that corresponds to the region boundaries. Our client then 
does a final merge/aggregation step (i.e. adding up the count it gets 
back from the scan for each region).
