Re: Adding a new region server or splitting an old region in a Hash-partitioned HBase Data Store
I don't have a particular document or source stating this but I think it is
actually kind of self-explanatory if your think about the algorithm.

Anyway, you can read this
http://blog.sematext.com/2012/04/09/hbasewd-avoid-regionserver-hotspotting-despite-writing-records-with-sequential-keys/

And some older discussions by experts on this topic:
