Re: key design

So you are saying you have ~3TB of data stored per day?

Using the second approach, all data for one day will go to only 1
regionserver no matter what you do because HBase doesn't split a single

Using the first approach, data will spread across regionservers but there
will be hotspotted to each regionserver during write since this is a
time-series problem.

Best Regards,
