Subject Re: Effect of RangeQuery with RandomPartitioner
Date Sat, 07 Jul 2012 15:17:55 GMT
Have 2 questions :

1. In RP on a given node, are the rows ordered by hash(key) or key ?
If the rows on a node are ordered by hash(key) then essentially it has
to be implemented by a full-scan on that node.

2. In RP, How does a cassandra node route a client's range-query
request ? The range is distributed across the ring, so essentially
either it send has to send the request to all nodes in the ring or
just do a local processing.
