Subject RE: customize partitioning of regionserver

Not to my knowledge.  Partitions are dynamically determined. As your table grows, regions become
too large and are split roughly in half.  This prevents unbalanced regions.  Any predetermined
partitioning will ultimately fail because you don't know your data as well as you think you
do.

Does HBase have the capability to partition dataset by range like the MySQL
partitioning eg. partition the datetime, row key by month?
Thank you.
