Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-7206) Integrate Snappy compression
Date Sat, 02 Apr 2011 06:01:08 GMT

issei yoshida commented on HADOOP-7206:
---------------------------------------

I start developing a external library of Snappy compression.
http://code.google.com/p/hadoop-snappy/

We can easily add this library to existing Hadoop cluster,
while I also hope to integrate it to Hadoop core.

I would like to hear your advice to improve the library.

> Google release Zippy as an open source (APLv2) project called Snappy (http://code.google.com/p/snappy).
This tracks integrating it into Hadoop.

> Snappy is a compression/decompression library. It does not aim for maximum compression,
or compatibility with any other compression library; instead, it aims for very high speeds
and reasonable compression. For instance, compared to the fastest mode of zlib, Snappy is
an order of magnitude faster for most inputs, but the resulting compressed files are anywhere
from 20% to 100% bigger. On a single core of a Core i7 processor in 64-bit mode, Snappy compresses
at about 250 MB/sec or more and decompresses at about 500 MB/sec or more.
