Re: Regarding rowkey
It depends. If you do not need to perform rangescans along (prefixes of) your row keys, you can prefix the row key by a hash of the row key.
That will give you a more or less random distribution of the keys and hence not hit the same region server over and over.

You'll probably also want to presplit your table then.

What can be used as rowkey to improve performance while loading into hbase? Currently I am having sequence. It takes some 11 odd minutes to load 1 million record with 147 columns.
