Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-15468) why Hbase only split regions in one RegionServer

Jonathan Hsieh commented on HBASE-15468:

Hi, Jack.  This is generally a question for the mailing list -- user@hbase.apache.org.  You
basically need to trigger the hbase balancer.  It runs periodically but can also be triggered
by going into the hbase shell and running the 'balancer' command.

> I was writing 300GiB data to my Hbase table user_info, the table I created by default
having only one region. When the writing was going I saw one region became two regions and
more late on it became 8 regions. But my confusion is that the 8 regions were kept in the
same RegionServer. Why Hbase didn't split the regions to different RegionServer. btw, I had
10 physical RegionsServers in my Hbase cluster, and the region size I set is 20GiB, Thanks!
