Re: modify hdfs block size
You can change it to any size in multiples of 512 bytes by default which is
But setting it to lesser values leads to heavy load on cluster and setting
to very high value will not distribute the data. So 64MB or (128MB in
latest trunk.) Is recommended as optimal. Its upto you to decide based on
your usecase.
