You have a key-value pair size of l00 bytes. You increase your HFile block size from its default
64k. What results from this change?
scan throughput increases and random-access latency decreases

Larger block size is preferred if files are primarily for sequential access.
Smaller blocks are good for random access, but require more memory to hold the block index, and
may be slower to create
