Getting the count of Cassandra table records

Suggest edit Updated on March 11, 2021

Extract the estimated number of records in a Cassandra cluster to verify that the data model is correct, or to troubleshoot slow response times.

  • To obtain the estimated number of records, in the nodetool utility, run the nodetool cfstats command.
    Note: Using the select count(*) command often produces a timeout exception when trying to extract a table record count. For more information, see the Apache Cassandra documentation.
