OpsCenter 4.0 User Guide

Managing a column family

To manage a column family:


  1. Select Schema in the OpsCenter console.
  2. From the list of keyspaces, select a keyspace.
    The #CFs columns shows how many column families each keyspace contains.
  3. From the list of the column families, select a column family.
    Click one of the following buttons:
    • Add—See above.
    • Delete—Completely removes the column family from the keyspace. You may select more than one column family in a keyspace to delete.
    • View Metrics—Presents metrics for a column family. In the Metric Options dialog, select a column family (CF) metric to view. To aggregate measurements across the entire cluster, all nodes in the data center, or in a particular node, select Cluster Wide, All Nodes, or the IP address of a node. At this point, you can add a graph of the measurements to the Performance Metrics area, or choose a different column family to measure.
    • Truncate—Deletes all data from the column family but does not delete the column family itself. Removal of the data is irreversible.
  4. When you select a column family, you see a list of manageable attributes: Properties (fully editable), Metadata (Add or Delete), and Secondary Indexes (Add or Delete).
