      Description

      Balancer is inefficient in the following case:

      Datanode Utilization Rack
      D1 95% A
      D2 30% B
      D3, D4, D5 0% B

      The average utilization is 25% so that D2 is within 10% threshold. However, Balancer currently will first move blocks from D2 to D3, D4 and D5 since they are under the same rack. Then, it will move blocks from D1.
