Where I can find this information, in fact information regarding read/writes. 
This is the output of the stat command
Server 1

All the servers have the same configs. 
Is -Xms512m -Xmx1g enough to handle my workload.
Moreover I see that the load is not evenly distributed. Is it something that should be tuned
or there is something like hbase/hdfs balancer, which will take care of this?

I’m using separate disk for both logs and data. But they’re hdd, not ssd. 
So my assumption 

I’ve tried to understand what actually is happening, here is the summary of the logs
08:22:08,201	Transaction timeout
08:22:08,596 - 08:22:25,441	ZookeeperServer not running
08:22:24,927	New election
Everything is starting from ’Transaction timeout’ in leader, which caused ‘Exception
when following the leader’ in learners.
Then all zookeeper processes are shutting down. New election is happening and zookeeper processes
are starting. 

And one more thing, what’s the best way to update the configs without downtime.
Thank you.
