Hi folks,

Currently, I working on custom CQL operator that should return the max
timestamp for some partition.

I don't think that scanning of partition for that kind of data is a nice
idea. Instead of it, I thinking about adding a metadata to the partition. I
want to store minTimestamp and maxTimestamp for every partition as it
already done in Memtable`s. That timestamps will be updated on each
mutation operation, that is quite cheap in comparison to full scan.

I quite new to Cassandra codebase and want to get some critics and ideas,
maybe that kind of data already stored somewhere or you have better ideas.
Is my assumption right?
