Subject Possibility of going OOM using get_count
Date Sun, 18 Sep 2011 19:16:41 GMT
Hi everyone,

I noticed this line in the API docs,

The method is not O(1). It takes all the columns from disk to calculate the
answer. The only benefit of the method is that you do not need to pull all
the columns over Thrift interface to count them.
Does this mean if a row has a large number of columns calling this method
might make it go OOM?

Thanks in advance.
