Better to edit the post and add the table def there. It has better editing capabilities.

comment How to design the cassandra table for one query with a ordering and limit?
If the answer only partially solves the problem, you could explain what it's missing. If the remaining issue is separate, a new question would be better. One of the ideas of SO is that questions and answers remain around for others that have the problem in the future. So, the value of a separate question is that someone else is more likely to find the help they need.

Could be. Could also be that the dictionary is not correct and my English teacher was. :) Neither one is perfect.

"There are lots of good ways to edit things." Well, a "lot" is a parcel of land or goods. That should read "There are many good ways to edit things." :)

comment Answered correctly, asker thanked and removed his question
Sure, it's not what we want, but the OP is new and probably just doesn't get that SO is about accumulating a store of knowledge where others can benefit. Good thing the mods can undelete.

comment The correct param to set function Cassandra?
It may take a bit for someone to respond, the cassandra area is lightly travelled. Also, the best SO questions are one per post, so it may help to break out your questions into separate posts.

comment cassandra read performance for blobs
The language I'm using is Java, with the DataStax driver. That could be the difference.

Google for tuning docs. Also, provide more info on the language you're using, or better yet, a full code example.

comment cassandra read performance for blobs
On my windows machine, the query runs in 175 milliseconds. The load takes 4.67 seconds. That's with the default config.

comment cassandra read performance for blobs
Are you using the default configuration, or have you tuned it? What's the underlying machine and O/S?

comment Is it bad if I held solder with my mouth?
@TDHofstetter Some solders may be radioactive? I'd never heard that, so maybe a citation is in order. Nevertheless, I'm radioactive, and so are you. I guess the real question is, is it more radioactive than I am?

comment Is it bad if I held solder with my mouth?
Lead solder on pipes quickly becomes coated with lime or other minerals, so the flowing water doesn't pick up that much. In general, I don't worry at all about some things that deeply bother others - but I don't put lead in my mouth.

comment Comparison : Aerospike vs Cassandra
What issues did you run into supporting Cassandra that made it an "operations nightmare"? I'm headed down the Cassandra path, so I'd like to know. :)

comment Comparison : Aerospike vs Cassandra
I've heard verbally that Netflix uses a small support team for Cassandra. Is there anywhere documented as to how many they're actually using?
