Subject [jira] Created: (HADOOP-54) SequenceFile should compress blocks, not individual entries
Date Wed, 22 Feb 2006 20:41:20 GMT
SequenceFile should compress blocks, not individual entries
-----------------------------------------------------------

         Key: HADOOP-54
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-54
     Project: Hadoop
        Type: Improvement
  Components: io  
    Versions: 0.2    
    Reporter: Doug Cutting
 Assigned to: Michel Tourn 
     Fix For: 0.2


SequenceFile will optionally compress individual values.  But both compression and performance
would be much better if sequences of keys and values are compressed together.  Sync marks
should only be placed between blocks.  This will require some changes to MapFile too, so that
all file positions stored there are the positions of blocks, not entries within blocks.  Probably
this can be accomplished by adding a getBlockStartPosition() method to SequenceFile.Writer.
