Perl5.10, Thrift::XS, Time::HiRes
perlcassa is a native Perl client for interfacing with Apache Cassandra. It is essentially an API for Apache Thrift. It intelligently deals with CompositeType columns and ValidationClasses and encodes and packs them appropriately for the columnfamily specified.
Note: This package does not support SuperColumns. Please look into CompositeType Comparators instead.
Creates a new Apache Cassandra Perl Client
* better documentation * better handling thrift exceptions to try from another provided Cassandra instance/host automagically * general performance optimizations * auto retry failures where the node is up when the client is created but there is an exception such as a timeout on insert
This wouldn't have been possible without help from my friend and colleague BJ Black.
