CQL pushdown filter (deprecated) 

Optimize the processing of the data by moving filtering expressions in Pig as close to the data source as possible.

Hadoop is deprecated for use with DataStax Enterprise. DSE Hadoop and BYOH (Bring Your Own Hadoop) are deprecated. Pig is also deprecated and will be removed when Hadoop is removed.

DataStax Enterprise includes a CqlStorage URL option, use_secondary. Setting the option to true optimizes the processing of the data by moving filtering expressions in Pig as close to the data source as possible. To use this capability:
  • Create an index for the Cassandra table.

    For Pig pushdown filtering, the secondary index must have the same name as the column being indexed.

  • Include the use_secondary option with a value of true in the url format for the storage handler. The option name reflects the term that used to be used for a Cassandra index: secondary index. For example:

    newdata = LOAD 'cql://ks/cf_300000_keys_50_cols?use_secondary=true' USING CqlNativeStorage();
