Number of Regions in Hbase are decreasing, as regions are merging automatically

Number of Regions in Hbase are decreasing, as regions are merging automatically

New Contributor

I have a cluster of 12 nodes, 3 master and 9 slave nodes. There are 9000 regions in total. So, a region server is having 1000 regions per server. I have set major compaction to happen at an interval of 7 days. But what happens is my number of regions get decreased days before the next major compaction is to occur, and hbase does not merge the regions on its own. Does anybody has idea about it?
