Subject Bootstrapping a node in 1.2.2
Date Tue, 19 Mar 2013 12:26:04 GMT
I've got a 3 node cluster in 1.2.2 and just bootstrapped a new node into
it. For each of the existing nodes, I had num tokens set to 256 and for the
new node I also had it set to 256, however after bootstrapping into the
cluster, "nodetool status <keyspace>" for my main keyspace which has RF=2
now reports:

|/ State=Normal/Leaving/Joining/Moving
--  Address           Load       Tokens  Owns   Host ID
UN       51.74 GB   256     34.1%  xxx  rack1
UN      75.04 GB   256     97.5%  yyy  rack1
UN      77.61 GB   256     34.1%  zzz  rack1
UN     126.93 GB  256     34.3%  www  rack1

Why does the bootstrapped node now own half the data? I would've expected
66.6% each. Any idea why the bootstrapped node is taking on a larger share
and how to spread the load evenly?

By the way, this test cluster is using the SimpleSnitch, so it shouldn't be
a topology issue.
