I think taht it depends on your partitioner. With an OPP you will have this behaviour. With a RP you won't have this behaviour. The hash randomize the keys, which is exactly its job to be sure that even if you are storing sequences you won't create hot spots.

Hi,

I was wondering if two records with "adjacent" keys are stored near-by, or with "adjacent" key hashes or neither?

Thanks!
