      The default blocks size prior to this change was 64MB. This jira changes the default block size to 128MB. To go back to previous behavior, please configure the in hdfs-site.xml, the configuration parameter "dfs.blocksize" to 67108864.

      Description

      The default HDFS block size (dfs.blocksize) has been 64mb forever. 128mb works well in practice on today's hardware configurations, most clusters I work with use it or higher (eg 256mb). Let's bump to 128mb in trunk for v3.
