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

             Summary: All Regions are flushed at about same time when MEMSTORE_PERIODIC_FLUSH
is on, causing flush spike
                 Key: HBASE-16030
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-16030
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 1.2.1
            Reporter: Tianying Chang
            Assignee: Tianying Chang


In our production cluster, we observed that memstore flush spike every hour for all regions/RS.
(we use the default memstore periodic flush time of 1 hour). 

This will happend when two conditions are met: 
1. the memstore does not have enough data to be flushed before 1 hour limit reached;
2. all regions are opened around the same time, (e.g. all RS are started at the same time
when start a cluster). 

With above two conditions, all the regions will be flushed around the same time at: startTime+1hour-delay
again and again.

We added a flush jittering time to randomize the flush time of each region, so that they don't
get flushed at around the same time. We had this feature running in our 94.7 and 94.26 cluster.
Recently, we upgrade to 1.2, found this issue still there in 1.2. So we are porting this into
1.2 branch.
