Subject recommended block replication for small cluster
Date Thu, 03 Apr 2014 11:10:39 GMT
I know the default replication is 3, which ensures reliability when 2 nodes
crash at the same time.

However, for a small cluster, e.g. 10~20 nodes, the possibility that 2
nodes crash at the same time is too small.

Can we simply set the replication to 2, or are there any other defects?

any information are appreciated!
