We just wanted to benchmark data insertion rates on the Cassandra store, so we started with using Thrift API. Is Hector considered better than Thrift because its better documented and intuitive that Thrift ? Any downside to it, as Thrift is a low level API to Cassandra. I hope that Hector provides the same functionality.
Why are you using Thrift from java instead of Hector?
