Subject Column names in Phoenix backed HBase tables
Date Mon, 14 Sep 2015 19:00:15 GMT
One of the recommendations in HBase is to have short column names. Now when
phoenix user defines a logical but longer column names this affects the
HFile size of such a table (column names are repeated). Even if we use
compression and data block encoding, the size while in transit and in
memory is still a concern.

Was there any consideration of leveraging catalog table to have the mapping
to get best of both world (logical names in phoenix but efficient and short
names in hbase)?
