Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-15156) Support first assignment of split daughters to non-parent RS

             Summary: Support first assignment of split daughters to non-parent RS
                 Key: HBASE-15156
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-15156
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Francis Liu
            Assignee: Francis Liu

On region split, the region's daughter is always opened by the same region server hosting
the parent region. In some cases this is not ideal:

This feature was mainly needed for favored nodes to allow for more freedom when selecting
favored nodes for daughter regions. ie The daughter doesn't have to always select the regionserver
hosting the split as a favored node which should allow for better favored node distribution.

Though this feature is actually useful in cases where region splits occur much more often
than the balancer is run. It also is a bit more efficient as the major compaction that occurs
after daughter assignment does not go to waste (ie cancelled half-way, loss of locality due
to move, etc). We actually run it this way in some of our clusters even without favored nodes
enabled. Hence I am supplying a patch which is independent of favored nodes.
