Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-4640) Add ability to split text files compressed with lzo
Date Fri, 21 Nov 2008 10:08:46 GMT

Johan Oskarsson commented on HADOOP-4640:
-----------------------------------------

I don't think it's worth calling getPos(), as you say it shouldn't cause any issues the way
it is now. TextInputFormat does it in the same way.

> Right now any file compressed with lzop will be processed by one mapper. This is a shame
since the lzo algorithm would be very suitable for large log files and similar common hadoop
data sets. The compression rate is not the best out there but the decompression speed is amazing.
 Since lzo writes compressed data in blocks it would be possible to make an input format that
can split the files.
