Jean-Marc Spaggiari commented on HBASE-13103:
---------------------------------------------

I love the idea, but do you see any way to do that online? 

Using merges and splits we might be able to do that.

Do you have any design in mind?

> Often enough, folks miss-judge split points or otherwise end up with a suboptimal number
of regions. We should have an automated, reliable way to "reshape" or "balance" a table's
region boundaries. This would be for tables that contain existing data. This might look like:
> {noformat}
> Admin#reshapeTable(TableName, int numSplits);
> {noformat}
> or from the shell:
> {noformat}
> > reshape TABLE, numSplits
> {noformat}
