Subject RE: Scan performance
Date Wed, 17 Jul 2013 01:29:26 GMT
I was able to test scan performance with 0.94.9 with around 6000 rows X 40 columns and FuzzyRowFilter
gave us 2-4 times better performance.  I was able to test this offline without any problems.
 However, once I turned it on in our development cluster, we noticed that with some row keys
that should have matched were not matching.  After reverting back to SingleColumnValueFilter
the cases that were failing, began to work again.  We thought that the anomaly was due to
certain data in row key, but we managed to create identical row keys in a different table
and see the scan work.  So, bottom line I can't explain this behavior.  Has anyone seen this
behavior and does anyone have debugging tips?

Thanks.

Take a look at
