I would convert each id to long and then use Bytes.toBytes to convert this
long to a byte array. If it is an int then even better.
Now, write all 3 longs one after another to one array which will be your
This gives you:
* fixed size
* small row key - 3*8 bytes if you use long and 3*4 for int.
Why do you need to use prefix split policy?
