Subject Cassandra remove column using thrift
Date Fri, 01 Nov 2013 15:15:42 GMT
Hello folks,

I have a couple of questions regarding deletion of columns from Cassandra
using thrift.
I am trying to remove a column using the thrift API call - remove() defined
as below.

void remove(1:required binary key,
              2:required ColumnPath column_path,
              3:required i64 timestamp,
              4:ConsistencyLevel consistency_level=ConsistencyLevel.ONE)
       throws (1:InvalidRequestException ire, 2:UnavailableException ue,
3:TimedOutException te),

I provide the timestamp as the current time and

My questions wrt this are:
1. Is there a log where I can check whether the remove command registered
successfully with the Cassandra nodes?
(In my case, the thrift call was successfully executed but my queries still
show data in the deleted column. I don't see logs in the system.log. )

2. Given that consistency_level=ConsistencyLevel.ALL, how much time does
cassandra take to commit the delete and cassandra client to get updated
