Subject RE: Question about Prefix Encodings

I do not think this encoding applied to Index and Bloom filter blocks.
It would not make much sense, because these blocks consumes only 1-2% of overall space.

Data blocks are kept encoded inside block cache if encoding is specified.

Seems like its called DATA_BLOCK_ENCODING, so it should only apply to data
blocks ?
