Subject Semantics of the split function
Date Wed, 18 Nov 2009 21:15:43 GMT

May I know the actual working/semantics of  a call to  split(String  
tableNameOrRegionName)    function in  HBaseAdmin class.
I mean, if  all the data belonged to one region before the call to split 
function,  what can be deterministically expected of the result ?  How 
many regions are created after splitting the one region ?  How are the 
split region placed ?  Do all the split regions remain on the same node 
that hosted the first region  ?
