It depends on how many logs need splitting.  It can take seconds to
minutes.  If lots of logs, many minutes.  During this time the
region/data is offline for reads and writes.

In 0.90.x hbase, the split process is done by the master process. In
0.92.0, the log splitting is distributed so should run faster in
