------------------------------------

             Summary: Region Normalizer does not merge empty region of a table
                 Key: HBASE-14838
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-14838
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.1.2, 1.2.0
            Reporter: Romil Choksi
            Assignee: Josh Elser


Region Normalizer does not merge empty region of a table

Steps to repro:
- Create an empty table with few, say 5-6 regions without any data in any of them
- Verify hbase:meta table to verify the regions for the table or check HMaster UI
- Enable normalizer switch and normalization for this table
- Run normalizer, by 'normalize' command from hbase shell
- Verify the regions for table by scanning hbase:meta table or checking HMaster web UI

The empty regions are not merged on running the region normalizer. This seems to be an edge
case with completely empty regions since the Normalizer checks for: smallestRegion (in this
case 0 size) + smallestNeighborOfSmallestRegion (in this case 0 size) > avg region size
(in this case 0 size)
thanks to [~elserj] for verifying this from the source code side
