Subject Re: How to find what node a key is on
Date Thu, 24 Mar 2011 00:16:06 GMT
No problems with read performance, just curious about what kind of overhead
was being added b/c we're doing read tests.

If it's easy to figure out where the row is stored, I'd be interested in
trying it. If not, don't worry about it.
