Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-13578) Add Codec for ZStandard Compression
Date Tue, 13 Dec 2016 21:38:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-13578?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15746346#comment-15746346

Jason Lowe commented on HADOOP-13578:
-------------------------------------

The thing I'm worried about is that when we call ZSTD_compressStream we are passing descriptors
for both the input buffer and the output buffer.  When we call ZSTD_endStream we are only
passing the descriptor for the output buffer.  Therefore I don't know how ZSTD_endStream is
supposed to finish consuming any input that ZSTD_compressStream didn't get to if it doesn't
have access to that input buffer descriptor.

Looking at the zstd code you'll see that when it does call ZSTD_compressStream inside ZSTD_endStream,
it's calling it with srcSize == 0.  That means there is no more source to consume.  So if
the last call of the JNI code to ZSTD_compressStream did not fully consume the input buffer's
data (i.e.: input pos is not moved to the end of the data) then it looks like calling ZSTD_endStream
will simply flush out what input data did make it and then end the frame.  That matches what
the documentation for ZSTD_endStream says.  So I still think we need to make sure we do not
call ZSTD_endStream if input.pos is not at the end of the input buffer after we call ZSTD_compressStream,
or we risk losing the last chunk of data if the zstd library for some reason cannot fully
consume the input buffer when we try to finish.
