Harsh J commented on HADOOP-7657:
---------------------------------

A good article's here (from author) - wherein he directly compares with snappy: http://fastcompression.blogspot.com/2011/06/lz4-improved-performance.html

Does seem to have an edge.

> According to several benchmark sites, LZ4 seems to overtake other fast compression algorithms,
especially in the decompression speed area. The interface is also trivial to integrate (http://code.google.com/p/lz4/source/browse/trunk/lz4.h)
and there is no license issue.
