Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-3127) Message (inter-node) compression
Date Fri, 14 Oct 2011 07:54:11 GMT


Sylvain Lebresne commented on CASSANDRA-3127:

bq. Let's go with this: intranode_message_compression_threshold > 0 means compress messages
larger than it. <= 0 means off

Agreed with the idea. Though to nitpick, I would find it more natural to have == 0 means 'compress
all messages'. And maybe < 0 means off.

bq. Let's leave off the cross-dc complexity for now.

Totally agree.

> CASSANDRA-3015 adds compression of streams. But it could be useful to also compress some
> Compressing messages is easy, but what may be little bit trickier is when and what messages
to compress to get the best performances.
> The simple solution would be to just have it either always on or always off. But for
very small messages (gossip?) that may be counter-productive. On the other side of the spectrum,
this is likely always a good choice to compress for say the exchange of merkle trees across
data-centers. We could maybe define a size of messages after which we start to compress. Maybe
the option to only compress for cross data-center messages would be useful too (but I may
also just be getting carried away).
