Subject Re: Compaction time

Thanks Viral and Jean,
  Sounds like timing the compactions is the only options now. Is it ok 
we put a large number to *|hbase.hstore.blockingStoreFiles|* so that 
even if compaction happens, automatic or manual , blocking rarely happens.

Is compaction time like 20-40 mins normal for a 2GB store .
