Create a Cassandra table 

Create a Cassandra table as part of the basic search tutorial.

Create a Cassandra table to start the basic search tutorial.

Procedure

  1. Ensure that your configuration is appropriate, and that you know the snitch for your cluster. See Initializing single-token architecture datacenters and verify the status of your node:
    $ nodetool status
  2. Start cqlsh, and create a keyspace. Use the keyspace.
    cqlsh> CREATE KEYSPACE nhanes_ks WITH REPLICATION =
           {'class':'NetworkTopologyStrategy', 'Solr':1};
    
    cqlsh> USE nhanes_ks;
  3. Copy the CQL table definition from the downloaded create_nhanes.cql file, and paste it on the cqlsh command line.
    This action creates the nhanes table in the nhanes_ks keyspace.
