How to balance the nodes on 5-node cluster to spread the region splits of a table evenly among the nodes?

I am using the Mapr Community edition, and have a 5-node cluster running. For one of the tables, Mapr was able to automatically create splits/regions, but for most (about 80%) of the region splits, the primary node was the same. So even though it created splits to avoid hotspot, since it was being written to the same node, the load on that node was high and the FileServer service kept on dying. I was wondering if there is a config value or setting that forces a rebalance if the FileServer memory usage hits a certain percent, or something that rebalances to have the region splits more evenly distributed.
