Subject Hbase row key size - can we use big row keys
Date Wed, 20 Jul 2011 14:00:28 GMT

We are trying to design a HBase table, and we seem to be tending towards packing 3 fields
into our row key, as we need to be able to do random access using these 3 fields.
The row key is turning out to be around 93 characters in size.

Is it okay to use a 100 character long row keys?  It will be great if you can share your experience/views
of any problems we may run into if we do this.
