Filters (and more generally, iterators) are executed on the server. There
is an option to run them client side. See

Using fetchColumnFamily will return only keys that have specific column
family values, not rows.

If I have a few keys in a table:

row1 family1: qualifier1
row1 family2: qualifier2
row2 family1: qualifier1

Let's say I call `scanner.fetchColumnFamily("family1")`. My scanner will

row1 family1: qualifier1
row2 family1: qualifier1

Now let's say I want to do a scan, but call
`scanner.fetchColumnFamily("family2")`. My scanner will return:

row1 family2: qualifier2

If you want whole rows that contain specific column families, then I
believe you'd have to write a custom iterator using the RowFilter
