 <p>The larger the block size, the more memory Drill needs for buffering data.

stores contiguously on disk. Given a single row group per file, Drill stores 
the entire Parquet file onto the block, avoiding network I/O.</p>

+<p>Drill 1.11 introduces the 
<code>store.parquet.writer.use_single_fs_block</code> option, which enables 
Drill to write a Parquet file as a single file system block without changing 
the default file system block size. Query performance improves when Drill reads 
Parquet files as a single block on the file system. When the 
<code>store.parquet.writer.use_single_fs_block</code> option is enabled, the 
<code>store.parquet.block-size</code> setting determines the block size of the 
Parquet files created. The default setting for the 
<code>store.parquet.writer.use_single_fs_block</code> option is 
&#39;false&#39;. Use the SET command to enable or disable the option, as shown:

 <p>The high correlation between Parquet and SQL data types makes reading 
Parquet files effortless in Drill. Writing to Parquet files takes more work 
than reading. Because SQL does not support all Parquet data types, to prevent 
Drill from inferring a type other than one you want, use the <a 
href="/docs/data-type-conversion/#cast">cast function</a> Drill offers more 
liberal casting capabilities than SQL for Parquet conversions if the Parquet 
data is of a logical type. </p>
