Subject RE: Viewing snappy compressed files
Date Wed, 22 May 2013 15:32:03 GMT
Thanks! This shortcuts my current process considerably, and should take the pressure off for
the short term. I'd still like to be able to analyze the data in a python script without having
to make a local copy, but that can wait.

I haven't tried this with snappy , but you can try using hadoop fs -text <path>

Hey, there. My Google skills have failed me, and I hope someone here can point me in the right

We're storing data on our Hadoop cluster in Snappy compressed format. When we pull a raw file
down and try to read it, however, the Snappy libraries don't know how to read the files. They
tell me that the stream is missing the snappy identifier. I tried inserting 0xff 0x06 0x00
0x00 0x73 0x4e 0x61 0x50 0x70 0x59 into the beginning of the file, but that didn't do it.

Can someone point me to resources for figuring out how to uncompress these files without going
through Hadoop?
