"Phoenix provides a way to transparently salt the row key with a salting byte for a particular table. You need to specify this in table creation time by specifying a table property “SALT_BUCKETS” with a value from 1 to 256."
- Does it mean number of region server in hbase cluster is limit to 256?
- My understanding is you can have more than 256 region servers, but the "salt" will be only between 1 and 256. Is that right?
