I just happened to be looking into this last night (smile).

To bring on a split, try the following:

1. Set down the hbase.region.memcache.flush.size on your table. There is
a bug that prevents you making this adjustment from the shell at the
moment but for a workaround, see
2. Then, wait till the optional flush runs
(hbase.regionserver.optionalcacheflushinterval). Default is every 30

If you want to run permanently with the smaller split size, you should
do as you posit, and lower the flush size --
hbase.hregion.memcache.flush.size -- in same proportion by which you
lowered split size.
