> When we try to read a block we do checksum verification for which we need the file name
in which the block belongs to. So we do Path.toString() every time. This seems to create around
163MB of char[] that is garbage collected in a simple scan run. It is also visible in writes
but the impact is lesser. In overall write/read profile the top 2 factors are byte[] and char[].
This toString() can easily be avoided and reduce its share from the total.
