Subject Re: Cluster processing not balanced

I found the issue.

Stupid mistake.

Although I have 1000000 customers in the cluster, I do a get_range_slices
to get the first 10000 customers. I use these customers as a seed for my
test program. I random select customers from that set and fire requests at
the cluster. Those 10000 customers all reside on the first node (actually
the first three nodes because of the replication factor of three).
