> We noticed while running unit tests that the TableSkewCostFunction computed cost did
not change as the balancer ran and simulated moves across the cluster. After investigating,
we found that this happened in particular when the cluster started out with at least one table
very strongly skewed.
> We noticed that the TableSkewCostFunction depends on a field of the BaseLoadBalancer.Cluster
class called numMaxRegionsPerTable, but this field is not properly maintained as regionMoves
are simulated for the cluster. The field only ever increases as the maximum number of regions
per table increases, but it does not decrease as the maximum number per table goes down.
> This patch corrects that behavior so that the field is accurately maintained, and thus
the TableSkewCostFunction produces a more correct value as the balancer runs.
