usecase0: i'm looking for the last 40 (limit) visits of people who are visiting for the first (the first session is < 24 hours ago) -> one index (session table) -> . -> last 40 sessions * bucket issue needs to be addressed, buckets are indexing the session cf (table).
usecase1: i'm looking for a machine id's visits always for a site 40 (limit) -> one index -> .123142.* @-> x sessions (no bucket issue, immediately get from sessions cf (table)).
usecase2: i'm looking for a machine id's visits one year ago -> one index -> .1234341.2009* @-> sessions
usecase3: i'm looking for a visit_id for a site -> one index -> .123142 -> session column family (table).
usecase4: i'm looking for a machine_id with this visit_id -> not available query
or deprecate offset, and just use next tokens. so implement a next token.
offset: we just iterate through. eg offset = 300, limit = 100 -> we need to iterate through first 301 keys, and use 301 - 400, preferably no memory problems = memory / key size = iteration size.
