Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-2477) CQL support for describing keyspaces / column familes
Date Mon, 16 May 2011 21:44:48 GMT


Rick Shaw commented on CASSANDRA-2477:

Tooling will want to be able to ask the API to describe:

- List all the Keyspace names.
- List all the attributes of the Keyspace
- List all the column families within a Keyspace
- List all of the column names and types of those columns that have been declared
- list all of the indexed names and alias names

I think this will need to be returned by the API at the code level not a shell. 

How about just a special set of CFs in the "System" Keyspace that can be treated as RO data
that describes Keyspaces and CFs?
