Going a step further, would it be possible to dynamically change the salt based on a runtime judgement of the number of region servers as the number of region servers increase?

Thanks

Hi,

Quick question on optimal number of SALT_BUCKETS - What would be the criteria for number of optimum SALT_BUCKETS when creating table?  Equal to one of these?

- number of nodes
- multiple or fraction of the number of nodes
- number of anticipated region servers
- multiple or fraction of the number of anticipated region servers

Or, some other criteria?

Thanks
