Subject Re: Order preserving partitioning strategy
Date Tue, 24 Aug 2010 10:03:12 GMT
The trade-off is in choosing which property you need: order preservation or
even load distribution.

The only reason a hybrid partitioner doesn't exist is that no one has been
able to create one. If you can create a partitioner that allows ordering
whilst ensuring an even load distribution, by all means contribute it to the
project, we'd all love to have it!

If you do manage such a feat, I'd suggest calling it HolyGrailPartitioner.
