Minmax Index

Use cases

MinMax Index is used for split filtering, and is used only by the coordinator nodes.

If this index exists on a column which is part of a predicate in the query, the engine may be able to improve performance by filtering scheduled splits similar to Bloom Index.

For example if an index exists on column


and the query is

select * from table where age > 50

Tip: sorting the data on the index column will provide the best results
