When issuing a query like:
Cassandra samples some data using get_range_slice and then applies the query.
This is very confusing to me, because as an end user am not sure if the query is fast because Cassandra is performing an optimized query (over an index, or using a slicePredicate) or if cassandra is simple sampling some random rows and returning me some results.
1) force people to supply a LIMIT clause on any query that is going to
page over get_range_slice
2) having some type of explain support so I can establish if this
query will work in the
I will champion suggestion 1) because CQL has put itself in a rather unique un-sql like position by applying an automatic limit clause without the user asking for them. I also do not believe the CQL language should let the user issue queries that will not work as intended with "larger-then-auto-limit" size data sets.
