Not necessarily consecutive, unless the request itself is so. It only
returns 500 rows that match the user's request.

User's request of a specific row-range and filters are usually
embedded into the Scan object, sent to the RS. Whatever is accumulated
as the result of the Scan operation (server-side) is accumulated in
sizes of 500 rows and returned in one Scanner.next() call from the
client.

Does this clear it up Lin?
