Subject Bulk loading into live data
Date Wed, 17 Aug 2011 06:57:37 GMT
http://www.datastax.com/dev/blog/bulk-loading indicates that "it is
perfectly reasonable to load data into a live, active cluster."

So lets say my cluster has a single KS & CF and it contains a key "test"
with a SC named "Cass" and a normal subcolumn named "Data" that has value 1.

If I SSTLoad data into that KS & CF that has the same key, it will rely on
timestamps stored in the SSTable to overwrite value "1" or not, right ?
What if the column is a counter ? Does it overwrite or increment ? Ie if the
SST I am loading has the exact same setup but value 2, will my value change
to 3 ?

Thanks
