Kevin Odell commented on HBASE-7084:

You think 1GB would be a better starting point?  It would save us 4x regions on the runaway

>                 Key: HBASE-7084
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-7084
>             Project: HBase
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: regionserver
>    Affects Versions: 0.96.0
>            Reporter: Harsh J
>            Priority: Trivial
> Several times I've seen folks mentioning to raise region split sizes from the default
256m to something more suitable (mostly folks say 1 GB, sometimes 2 GB, more than other options),
in order to control the # of regions explosion once they begin heavy-hitting the tables.
> Perhaps it makes sense to raise the default itself, since there are ways to bring it
down per-table if needed by some use-cases?
> Opening this as a discussion first, since this "too many regions" trouble is quite prevalent
among newcomers.
