Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-5038) LZ4Compressor
Date Fri, 31 May 2013 15:21:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-5038?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13671563#comment-13671563

Carl Yeksigian commented on CASSANDRA-5038:
-------------------------------------------

One benefit to LZ4 is that the unsafe implementation isn't much slower than the native version;
if we end up going to an incompatible version (or people run on some platform that Snappy/LZ4
native hasn't been created for), they won't have nearly the slowdown that Snappy has (or at
least had, not sure if they've addressed that).

> LZ4 is a new compression algo that's ~2x faster than Snappy.
> [~jpountz] has written a nice java port which includes a misc.Unsafe version that performs
>= than our java snappy version.
> Details at http://blog.jpountz.net/post/28092106032/wow-lz4-is-fast
> The nice thing is this should work with java7 and be more portable.
> We can also fallback the pure java impl
