Subject Re: Define keyspaces in cassandra 0.7
Date Mon, 19 Jul 2010 14:48:10 GMT
I just realized that I didn't answer the "how" part of your question.  :)

http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/cassandra/trunk/contrib/py_stress/stress.py
and http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/cassandra/trunk/test/system/__init__.py
both contain examples of how to use the system_* methods to manipulate
keyspaces.

Gary.
