Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-7206) Integrate Snappy compression
Date Sat, 25 Jun 2011 00:58:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7206?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13054785#comment-13054785

Eli Collins commented on HADOOP-7206:

I verified that with snappy-1.0.3 installed on my host a tarball built with {{ant -Dforrest.home=$FORREST_HOME
-Dbundle.snappy=true compile-native tar}} correctly bundles the snappy lib. Also tested that
TestCodec run from this tarball runs w/ native snappy enabled when it (and libhadoop) are
available on the host.

> 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.
