Thank You so much Maki :) Its working now... I dont know what went wrong yesterday...

BTW bin/cassandra-cli --host localhost is to read and write data using the command line client right???

So what if i need to load data from a file into cassandra???

i.e.i have a log file with so many lines... lines may be in the format <sessionid> <key> <value>

so how can i load data from this log file into cassandra?

Thanks and Regards,
Amrita

So, you need another terminal to run cassandra-cli. Open another
terminal window and then:

You will see the cassandra-cli pormpt on your terminal like:

 Type 'help;' or '?' for help. Type 'quit;' or 'exit;' to quit.
