      Description

      Right now we only balance the cluster once every 5 minutes by default. This is likely to confuse new users. When you start a new region server, you expect it to pick up some load very quickly, but right now you have to wait 5 minutes for it to start doing anything in the worst case.

      We could/should also add a button/shell command to "trigger balance now"
