If we expect non of  our partition key to have more than 100 records and pass partition key in where clause we wouldnt see issues using new column and allow filtering?  Can you please point me to any doc how allow filtering works. I was in assumption of it goes through all the partitions

If you're giving the partition key you won't scan the whole table. The overhead will depend on the size or the partition. 

Would be an interesting workload for our tlp-stress tool, I'll code something up for the next release.

We have a table and want to add column and select based on existing entire primary key plus new column using allow filtering. Since my where clause has all the primary key + new column does the allow filtering scan only the partions which are listed or does it has to scan whole table? What is the best approach add new column and query it based on existing primary key plus new column?
