Subject Column name size
Date Fri, 11 Feb 2011 10:06:59 GMT
Hi all!

I'm thinking if size of a column name could matter for a large dataset
in Cassandra  (I mean lots of rows). For example what if I have a row
with 10 columns each has 10 bytes value and 10 bytes name. Do I have
half the row size just of the column names and the other half of the
data (not counting storage overhead)?  What if I have 10M of these
rows? Is there a difference? Should I use some 3bytes codes for a
column name to save memory/bandwidth?
