Subject better presplitting
Date Fri, 20 Jun 2014 18:58:28 GMT
One thing that jumped out from the most recent D4M paper was this quote:

  One issue that was encountered is that after creating the pre-splits,
they all started out on one server. Accumulo load balanced the splits
across its servers at rate of ~50 splits/second, which is more than
adequate for normal operation, but can take ~20 minutes for 50,000 pre-

Do we already have an open ticket that would help this? I think maybe
there's one about being able to presplit a table that is offline?

I believe our recommended sweet spot is like 100-200 tablets per server
(though I can't find the reference for *why* I believe this ATM), which
means for clusters in the ~100s of nodes this would be in the ballpark for
an expected number of pre-splits.
