You have two regionservers and they have different amounts of RAM?

By default, HBASE sets its heap at 1G.

What else is running on these machines?

Are your machines swapping -- particularly the 1G regionserver?

What kind of machines are they if you don't mind?

I'm not sure I follow.  Are you seeing the regionserver overrun?  It can't
keep up with compactions or its not flushing fast enough?

How are you doing your upload?  What kind of application is it?
