[Ndn-interest] File download times and Changing segment size on ndnfs server

Hi All,

It takes around 2 seconds to download a 1MB file and 33 seconds to download
a 30MB file(compared to 0.13 and 2.6 seconds for the same files over HTTP
Apache). Is this behaviour expected?  I am using ndnfs-server and PyNDN

I tried changing the segment size in ndnfs server
<https://github.com/remap/ndnfs-port> to 800KB from 8KB(in ndnfs.cc
<https://github.com/remap/ndnfs-port/blob/master/fs/ndnfs.cc> and server.cc
<https://github.com/remap/ndnfs-port/blob/master/server/server.cc>), but
that is giving me 3936 segments of 800KB each whereas it should have been
only 40 segments.
Do I need to modify the seg_size_shift as well? I'm wondering if the
seg_size_shift needs to modified from 13 to give the correct segment number
size(40 instead of 3936).
Has anyone tried changing the segment size and its effect on file
downloading speed?
