Should a three node Cassandra cluster with a replication factor of 3 have the same load value for all three nodes?
We are using a random partitioner and NetworkTopologyStrategy. Nodetool ring shows equal values for "Owns" but unequal values for "Load".
Load Owns Token 113427455640312821154458202477256070484 16.53 GB 33.33% 0 14.8 GB 33.33% 56713727820156410577229101238628035242 15.65 GB 33.33% 113427455640312821154458202477256070484
Running nodetool repair and cleanup on each node brought the load a little closer but it still seems quite unbalanced.
Is this considered normal?
