Subject [jira] [Updated] (HBASE-3866) Script to add regions gradually to a new regionserver.
Date Fri, 06 May 2011 22:52:03 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-3866?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Aravind Gottipati updated HBASE-3866:

    Attachment: slow_balancer.rb

This script uses a lot of the code from region_mover.rb.  The script should be invoked like

 HBASE_NOEXEC=true $HBASE_HOME/bin/hbase org.jruby.Main $HBASE_HOME/bin/slow_balancer.rb --debug
-l 2

The -l option is the target difference between the server with the maximum regions and the
server with the minimum regions.  Once the delta reaches this point, the script exits.  If
-l is not passed, it defaults to the number of region servers in your environment.

>         Attachments: slow_balancer.rb
> When a new region server is brought online, the current balancer kicks off a whole bunch
of region moves and causes a lot of regions to be un-available right away.  A slower balancer
that gradually balances the cluster is probably a good script to have.  I have an initial
version that mooches off the region_mover script to do this.
