Subject HDFS data block clarification
Date Fri, 03 Apr 2009 01:44:44 GMT
  Can someone tell whether a file will occupy one or more blocks? for
example, the default block size is 64MB, and if I save a 4k file to HDFS,
will the 4K file occupy the whole 64MB block alone? so in this case, do I do
need to configure the block size to 10k if most of my files are less than
10K?

thanks,
