Subject Re: Why is row lookup much faster than column lookup
Date Tue, 13 Mar 2012 17:43:43 GMT
Given the hashtable nature of cassandra, finding a row is probably 'relatively' constant no
matter how many columns you have.The smaller the number of columns, i suppose the more likely
that all the columns will be in one sstable. If you've got a ton of columns per row, it is
much more likely that these columns will be spread out in multple ss tables. Plus, columns
are read in chunks, depending on yaml settings.   ----- Original Message -----From: &quot;A
