Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-15156) Support first assignment of split daughters to non-parent RS
Date Wed, 03 Feb 2016 03:22:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-15156?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15129710#comment-15129710

Francis Liu commented on HBASE-15156:

For instance, could the assign happen inside in the onRegionSplit? 
Another approach is to remove onRegionSplit altogether and have invokeAssign() assign the
daughters to the RS that initiated the split. This way the forked code between the two behaviors
becomes insignificant. This is also more efficient it seems. Thoughts?

> On region split, the region's daughter is always opened by the same region server hosting
the parent region. In some cases this is not ideal:
> This feature was mainly needed for favored nodes to allow for more freedom when selecting
favored nodes for daughter regions. ie The daughter doesn't have to always select the regionserver
hosting the split as a favored node which should allow for better favored node distribution.
> Though this feature is actually useful in cases where region splits occur much more often
than the balancer is run. It also is a bit more efficient as the major compaction that occurs
after daughter assignment does not go to waste (ie cancelled half-way, loss of locality due
to move, etc). We actually run it this way in some of our clusters even without favored nodes
enabled. Hence I am supplying a patch which is independent of favored nodes.
