Re: larger HFile block size for very wide row?
To be more clear, each KV (cell) is a couple of KB but each row is a
couple of MB. If I need to search through row key, but always fetch rows
as a whole, shall I use a block size larger than the default 64KB?

Thanks,
Wei

Subject:        larger HFile block size for very wide row?

Hi, I have a HBase table where each row has ~1000k columns, ~2K each. My
table scan pattern is to use a row key filter but I need to fetch the
whole row (~1000 k) columns back.

Shall I set HFile block size to be larger than the default 64K?
Thanks,
Wei
