Thanks -- I actually just stumbled across that setting in CDH manager, and am experimenting with raising it.

The HBase book warns "The rule of thumb is to keep this number low when the payload per request approaches the MB (big puts, scans using a large cache) and high when the payload is small (gets, small puts, ICVs, deletes)" -- we do have a pattern of lots of small writes, and infrequent and relatively few large reads. Should I be worried about this?
