Subject Re: how to pre split a table whose row key is MD5(url)?
Date Sun, 11 May 2014 22:13:52 GMT
Simple answer… you really can’t. 
The best thing you can do is to pre split the table in to 4 regions based on splitting the
first byte in to 4 equal ranges. (0-63,64-127,128-191,191-255) 

And hope that you’ll have an even split. 

In theory, over time you will.
