Subject Re: Finding big rows
Date Tue, 10 May 2011 22:28:31 GMT
I'm not aware of anything to find the row sizes, and your code looks like a good approach.
Converting the key bytes to a string only makes sense if your app is doing the same thing.

In the cli try using one of the data type functions to format the key the same way as your
app is, e.g. get FooCF[utf8('my-key')]

The main limitation on Super Columns is that Sub columns are not indexed
If you have a huge row use the get_slice() api call to get back slices of columns. The cli
does not support slicing columns. 

Hope that helps.
