Subject Re: Region is out of bounds

  I know you said, "do not ask me why", but I am going to have to ask you
why.  The fact you are doing this(this being blocking store files > 200)
tells me there is something or multiple somethings wrong with your cluster
setup.  A couple things come to mind:

* During this heavy write period, could we use bulk loads?  If so, this
should solve almost all of your problems

* 1GB region size is WAY too small, and if you are pushing the volume of
data you are talking about I would recommend 10 - 20GB region sizes this
should help keep your region count smaller as well which will result in
more optimal writes

* Your cluster may be undersized, if you are setting the blocking to be
that high, you may be pushing too much data for your cluster overall.

Would you be so kind as to pass me a few pieces of information?

1.) Cluster size
2.) Average region count per RS
3.) Heap size, Memstore global settings, and block cache settings
4.) a RS log to pastebin and a time frame of "high writes"

I can probably make some solid suggestions for you based on the above data.
