Correct. Random partitioner order is md5 token order. If you make no changes you will get the same order

Row iteration using RandomPartitioner


Bit of a silly question, is row iteration using the RandomPartitioner deterministic?  I don't particularly care what the order is relative to the row keys (obviously there isn't one, it's the RandomPartitioner), but if I run a full iteration over all rows in a CF twice, assuming no underlying changes to the CF in the meantime, will the rows be returned in the same order both times?

I assume so, as I don’t see how one could use get_range_slices to do this otherwise, but I wanted to check.
