      Description

      Several times I've seen folks mentioning to raise region split sizes from the default 256m to something more suitable (mostly folks say 1 GB, sometimes 2 GB, more than other options), in order to control the # of regions explosion once they begin heavy-hitting the tables.

      Perhaps it makes sense to raise the default itself, since there are ways to bring it down per-table if needed by some use-cases?

      Opening this as a discussion first, since this "too many regions" trouble is quite prevalent among newcomers.
