Subject Short Tables names and column names
Date Tue, 30 May 2017 20:09:37 GMT
Hello All,

it is recommended to keep HBase column family and attribute names short.
does this recommendation apply to Apache Phoenix as well?
Keep the table and column names short?

6.3.2.1. Column Families

Try to keep the ColumnFamily names as small as possible, preferably one
character (e.g. "d" for data/default).

See Section 9.7.5.4, “KeyValue”
<http://hbase.apache.org/0.94/book/regions.arch.html#keyvalue> for more
information on HBase stores data internally to see why this is important.
6.3.2.2. Attributes

Although verbose attribute names (e.g., "myVeryImportantAttribute") are
easier to read, prefer shorter attribute names (e.g., "via") to store in
HBase.

See Section 9.7.5.4, “KeyValue”
<http://hbase.apache.org/0.94/book/regions.arch.html#keyvalue> for more
information on HBase stores data internally to see why this is important.

thanks for your help.
