Saad Mufti commented on HBASE-20045:
------------------------------------

Also if ever a setting is contemplated, it would be great to backport back to 
1.4.0 or earlier. Thanks.

> When running compaction, cache recent blocks.

> 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).
