3 Pitfalls of Working with Cassandra

MariaDB TX, proven in production and driven by the community, is a complete database solution for any and every enterprise — a modern database for modern applications.

Here are some points to keep in mind when working with Cassandra.

  • Have to use ordered partitioner if you want row keys in sorted order. Be aware that if the row keys are not distributed properly it would create hot spots since most of rows will be concentrated to several nodes.
  • Columns are sorted using definitions given when creating the column family but row keys are not sorted according to them.
  • If you see only hex values in Cassandra-cli for column keys and values in the shown results use ‘as’ and ‘assume’ to get the human readable values of the column keys and values. See this thread.

MariaDB AX is an open source database for modern analytics: distributed, columnar and easy to use.
