Subject Re: High Ingest on a single server [SEC=UNOFFICIAL]
Date Thu, 29 Aug 2013 13:22:55 GMT
The balancers that ship with accumulo attempt to keep an equal number of
tablets on each server.  An empty tablet, will be balanced with the same
weight as a 50G tablet.

You can write a new balancer to take advantage of the properties of the
tablets, and any expected hotspots you have.
