Try setting the UPDATE_CACHE_FREQUENCY table property (and configuring
the phoenix.default.update.cache.frequency system-wide property). That'll
prevent pinging the region hosting SYSTEM.CATALOG every time a query is
compiled. We've found value of even 5 seconds makes a big difference. For
more on that, see here[1] and here[2].

In the future, we'll let the SYSTEM.CATALOG table span multiple regions -
keep an eye on PHOENIX-3534.
