Subject [jira] [Commented] (ARROW-300) [Format] Add buffer compression option to IPC file format
Date Wed, 26 Oct 2016 15:23:58 GMT


Wes McKinney commented on ARROW-300:

It may make sense to limit to compressors designed for fast decompression performance: snappy,
zstd, lz4. High compression ratios might be less interesting, but I'm interested in more feedback
on use cases.

as their being written in the file layout.
> I would propose that we keep this extremely simple with a global buffer compression setting
in the file Footer. Probably only two compressors worth supporting out of the box would be
zlib (higher compression ratios) and lz4 (better performance).
