Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-3373) Allow regions of specific table to be load-balanced
Date Sun, 19 Dec 2010 04:00:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-3373?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12972908#action_12972908

Ted Yu commented on HBASE-3373:

If a table is heavily written to, its regions split over relatively long period of time.
The new daughter regions may not have good distribution.

E.g. after a region server comes back online from crash, it takes time for balancer to assign
regions from other servers. The new regions from above tend to get assigned to this region

>             Fix For: 0.90.1
> From our experience, cluster can be well balanced and yet, one table's regions may be
badly concentrated on few region servers.
> For example, one table has 839 regions (380 regions at time of table creation) out of
which 202 are on one server.
> It would be desirable for load balancer to distribute regions for specified tables evenly
across the cluster. Each of such tables has number of regions many times the cluster size.
