Subject Re: HDFS data locality

The master currently doesn't do anything specifically to assure the
locality. Maybe a future version will do so?

During the continuous operation of a regionserver, it will do
compactions which is essentially rewriting all the data. The
compactions create data locality. Generally on my prod cluster regions
get into a stable assignment and stay there for months on end.  If you
are not taking your cluster up and down multiple times a day, the
locality becomes very strong.
