This is a very interesting article indeed, it seems to say that for heap
size > 4-8GB - time of new gen collection could be dominated by size of the
heap rather than size of new generation. This is interesting and I have not
found any such guideline in hbase book etc.
Do you think the overall heap size needs to go down in this case ?
