Subject Re: [DISCUSSION] Design document. Rebalance caches by transferring partition files
Date Wed, 28 Nov 2018 15:43:06 GMT
Eduard,

Thank you very much for the discussion!

Your algorithm looks much better for me too and easier to implement.
I'll update appropriate process points on IEP page of the proposed
rebalance procedure.
