      Description

      DataXceiver initializes the block size to the default block size for the cluster. This size is later used by the FsDatasetImpl when applying VolumeChoosingPolicy.

          block.setNumBytes(dataXceiverServer.estimateBlockSize);
      

      where

        /**
         * We need an estimate for block size to check if the disk partition has
         * enough space. For now we set it to be the default block size set
         * in the server side configuration, which is not ideal because the
         * default block size should be a client-size configuration. 
         * A better solution is to include in the header the estimated block size,
         * i.e. either the actual block size or the default block size.
         */
        final long estimateBlockSize;
      

      In most cases the writer can just pass the maximum expected block size to the DN instead of having to use the cluster default.
