Running prefix scans in hbase
Hi,

I was looking at PrefixFilter but going by the implementation - it looks we
scan every row until we hit the prefix instead of seeking to the row with
the required prefix.

I was wondering if there are more efficient alternatives which would do a
real seek rather than scanning all rows. Would setting startRow and stopRow
- effectively seek to startRow and then perform the scan ?

Thanks
Varun
