Subject changing the block size
Date Thu, 03 Feb 2011 12:35:09 GMT
Currently I am using the default block size of 64MB. I would like to change
it for my cluster to 256 megabytes since I deal with large files (over
2GB).  What is the best way to do this?

What file do I have to make the change on? Does it have to be applied on the
namenode or each individual data nodes?  What has to get restarted,
namenode, datanode, or both?
