Subject Choosing a Partitioner Type for Random java.util.UUID Row Keys
Date Tue, 20 Dec 2011 03:01:00 GMT
Hey Guys,

I just came across and it got me thinking.
If the row keys are java.util.UUID which are generated randomly (and securely), then what
type of partitioner would be the best? Since the key values are already random, would it make
a difference to use RandomPartitioner or one can use ByteOrderedPartitioner or OrderPreservingPartitioning
as well and get the same result?
