      Description

      In SimpleLoadBalancer, plans are generated firstly by average number regions per server for a table. Each server will be randomly assigned either floor(average) or ceiling(average) regions (if the average is not an integer number). But afterwards, the balanceOverall method might generate new plans of some regions of the table to balance server loads in whole cluster scope. As a result, there are plans to move a same region in one call of balance.

      Currently, branch-2 is using async procedures to implement balancer plans. But the concurrency of moving the same regions will cause the balance method failed. And all the afterwards plans will not be implement when one plan encounters exception.
      We have encountered this problem in our practices, the logs are as follows,

      This is a serious problem because it often occurs when new RSs started or old RSs failover. And what's more, no effective methods can be used to make the balance of the cluster back to normal.

      But the solution of this problem may be simple. We can cache Exceptions when implementing a plan, and then just skip it, avoiding failed plans effect later plans in the whole plans list. New calls of balance can fetch up the failed and skipped plans.
