If you want super accurate "counters" a good option available is to to batching on the client side and then take advantage of CAS. For now counters for smaller windows of time (think minute not days) should help with some drift issues.

The complete rewrite of counters in 2.1(which should address the counter accuracy issues) will still have this limitation.  Deleting and recreating counters is not supported and will continue to not be supported.

The last time I checked as in v 2.0.0 counters did not work. Over a period of time , the counters drift from the correct value. There were several open issues and proposal to rewrite the counter implementation

Have you checked if all the issues with counters have been fixed ?

Folks,

What is the best known method for resetting a counter in CQL?  Is it best to read the counter and then increment it by a negative amount?  Or to delete the row and then increment it by zero?

These are the two methods I could come up with.  Both of these seem fine to me---I'm just wondering if there is a standard way to do this.  Thanks!

Best regards,
Clint
