The policy that decides which Cassandra hosts to contact for each new query. For efficiency purposes, the policy is expected to exclude down hosts from query plans.

Initialize this load balancing policy.
Note that the driver guarantees that it will call this method exactly once per policy object and will do so before any call to another of the methods of the policy.
void Initialize(ICluster cluster)
The information about the session instance for which the policy is created.
Returns the hosts to use for a new query.
Each new query will call this
method. The first host in the result will then be used to perform the query.
In the event of a connection problem (the queried host is down or appear to
be so), the next host will be used. If all hosts of the returned
Iterator are down, the query will fail.
IEnumerable<Host> NewQueryPlan(string keyspace, IStatement query)
Keyspace on which the query is going to be executed, it can be null.
The query for which to build a plan, it can be null.
An iterator of Host. The query is tried against the hosts returned by this iterator in order, until the query has been sent successfully to one of the host.
