length of row key and column name

Rong-En Fan-2
Hi,

I know that we can have length limit for the cell when creating
a table. But I'm not sure if there are any lengh limit of the  row
key and the column name?

Thanks,
Rong-En Fan

No, there is no way to specify the maximum length of a row key or a column name.

ok. Speaking of length limit, what's the rationale behind the limit on cell?
Any performance reason or just a limit for convenience?

Thanks,

RE: length of row key and column name

Jim Kellerman
Actually, the length limit on a cell is not enforced anywhere. I suppose it was put there because someone thought that it might be useful at some point in time. For practical purposes, a row (including row and column keys and values) should be less than the maximum region size (which is configurable and defaults to 256MB)

I can't cite a use-case Rong-en but I'd bet someone will need it, sometime.
