# TODO update doc
adds a list of folders to the data distribution.
if not specified otherwise, the assignments are calculated using the LPT algorithm.
returns a list of assignments from folders to OSDs, for which (folders) there was previously no assignment.
if the optional arguments are given, OSDs are assigned data proportionally to their ratio_parameter.
if osd_information and ratio_parameter are given,
OSDs are assigned data proportionally to their ratio_parameter.
osd_information is a map (that we now call outer map) that contains, for each OSD, an inner_map.
outer_map[osd_uuid][ratio_parameter] is used to calculate the proportion of data assigned to OSD with uuid
if ignore_osd_capacities=False,
outer_map[osd_uuid][capacity] is used (only in combination with random_osd_assignment=True)
to generate random assignments that do not surpass the capacities of the OSDs.
(random assignment respecting OSD capacities)
if random_osd_assignment=True and ignore_osd_capacities=True, a totally random OSD assignment generated.
if random_osd_assignment=True and ignore_folder_sizes=True,
folders are randomly assigned to OSDs such that all OSDs have the same number of folders (if possible).
the assignment is stable (i.e., folders already assigned to an OSD are not reassigned to another OSD).
