I also found this fairly recent script here which can be used with Gnuplot
to get a visual representation of data distribution across nodes:
Again, my JRuby skills are non-existent so just blindly running the script
versus HBase 0.92 results in a:
NoMethodError: private method `load' called for
main at region_hist.rb:23
call at org/jruby/RubyProc.java:270
call at org/jruby/RubyProc.java:220
main at region_hist.rb:19
(root) at region_hist.rb:37
Maybe it has to do with the author's remark:
[Note: I've been advised (thanks ntelford!) that HServerInfo is gone in
newer releases and you now need to get HServerLoad via
What are the changes that need to be made to the script to get it to run on
