Jonathan, Thanks for the quick reply.
 
After starting a loadbalance operation for about 30 minutes,  I can see 3 ColumnFamily-tmp-Data, Filter and Index files
on a lightly loaded node. The Data file has a size of 2,147,483,647 (max signed int) on the node being loaded. I hope I didn't run out of Int space during the load balance operation.
 
The file sizes don't seem to be changing in the column family folder of the newly loaded node. The system/LocationInfo files haven't changed in 20 minutes. The 3 ColumnFamily files still have the -tmp- name.
 
Can I tell if the load balancing operaion is still running ok or if it has terminated?
 
Is there a rough computation to determine how long the process should take?
 
If the load balancing is successful, will the cluster ring information reflect the load balanacing changes?
 
Thanks,
Jon
