When you create a namespace, its default shred setting is not to shred. Once the namespace exists, you can change this setting at any time.

Once an object is marked for shredding, its shred setting cannot be changed.

Note: If HCP is allowed to use erasure coding to implement replication of a namespace, setting the default shred setting to shred for that namespace can significantly increase the load on all systems in the replication topology.
