Subject [jira] [Updated] (HBASE-13103) [ergonomics] add region size balancing as a feature of master
Date Thu, 05 Mar 2015 22:26:38 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-13103?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Nick Dimiduk updated HBASE-13103:
---------------------------------
    Description: 
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}

Better still would be to have a maintenance process, similar to the existing Balancer that
runs AssignmentManager on an interval, to run the above "reshape" operation on an interval.
That way, the cluster will automatically self-correct toward a desirable state.
