Ideally when cache on write is enabled even on compactions right? Is it missed 
or was it like that always? 

> When running compaction, cache recent blocks.

>             Project: HBase
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: BlockCache, Compaction
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-beta-1
>            Reporter: Jean-Marc Spaggiari
>            Priority: Major
> HBase already allows to cache blocks on flush. This is very useful for 
> usecases where most queries are against recent data. However, as soon as 
> their is a compaction, those blocks are evicted. It will be interesting to 
> have a table level parameter to say "When compacting, cache blocks less than 
> 24 hours old". That way, when running compaction, all blocks where some data 
> are less than 24h hold, will be automatically cached. 
> Very useful for table design where there is TS in the key but a long history 
> (Like a year of sensor data).
