Re: hbase- balancer issue
Hi Samir,

Regions are balancer per table.

So if you have 48 regions within the same table, it should be split about
24 on each server.

But if you have 48 tables with 1 region each, the for each table, the
balancer will see only 1 region and will display the message you saw.

Have you looked at the UI? What do you have in it? Can you please confirm
if yo uhave 48 tables or 1 table?
