Subject Why data is not even distributed.
Date Thu, 04 Oct 2012 00:39:29 GMT
Hello, everybody!

I'm observing very strange behavior. I have 3 node cluster with
ByteOrderPartitioner. (I run 1.1.5)
I created a key space with replication factor of 1.
Then I created one column family and populated it with random data.
I use UUID as a row key, and Integer as a column name.
Row keys were generated as

UUID uuid = UUID.randomUUID();

I populated about 100000 rows with 100 column each.

I would expect equal load on each node, but the result is totally
different. This is what nodetool gives me:

Address         DC          Rack        Status State   Load
Effective-Ownership Token

Token(bytes[56713727820156410577229101238628035242])       datacenter1 rack1       Up     Normal  27.61 MB
33.33%              Token(bytes[00])       datacenter1 rack1       Up     Normal  206.47 KB
Token(bytes[0113427455640312821154458202477256070485])       datacenter1 rack1       Up     Normal  13.86 MB

one node ( is almost empty.
Any ideas what is wrong?

Thank you,
