             Summary: Add splits to table at table creation.
                 Key: ACCUMULO-4808
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Sub-task
          Components: master, tserver
            Reporter: Mark Owens
             Fix For: 2.0.0

Add capability to add table splits at table creation. Recent changes now allow 
iterator and locality groups to be created at table creation. Do the same with 
splits. Comment below from 
[ACCUMULO-4806|] explains 
the motivation for the request:

It would go al long way if the splits could be added at table creation or when 
table is offline.  When the other API changes were made by Mark, I wondered if 
this task could also could be done at that time - but I believe that it was 
more complicated.

The delay is that when a table is created and then the splits added and then 
taken offline there is a period proportional to the number of splits as they 
are off-loaded from the tserver where they originally got assigned.  (The 
re-online with splits distributed across the cluster is quite fast)

If the splits could be added at table creation, or while the table is offline 
so that the delay for shedding the tablets could be avoided, then the need to 
perform the actual import offline would not be as necessary.
