             Summary: [0.89-fb] Rebalance primaries in-non disruptive way
                 Key: HBASE-10940
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-10940
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Region Assignment
    Affects Versions: 0.89-fb
            Reporter: Adela Maznikar
            Assignee: Adela Maznikar
             Fix For: 0.89-fb

Added an option RegionPlacement -bp (balance primaries).
Sometimes in production we hit a case where some of the regionservers are serving less number
of regions than the rest and just updating the assignment plan doesn't help since locality
is highest on those locations and locality is the highest parameter considered when we produce
assignment plan for primaries. 

We want to switch primary and tertiary in a case where the regionserver has
more than average primaries and more primaries assigned than the
regionserver where teritary is (and tertiary has less than average). We do
bfs traversal from each node (node being a regionserver, and there is an edge from machine
serving primary to machine serving tertiary for a particular region) until we find the node
to which there is a
path and that node has less primaries assigned. Then we switch primary and
 tertiary for all nodes on the path. We do that for each node. (node ==

The motivation of the approach is - we want to move the region to a location where locality
is high enough.
