Subject Documenting Guidance on compression and codecs
Date Wed, 11 Sep 2013 19:10:18 GMT
Do we have a consolidated resource with information and recommendations
about use of the above? For instance, I ran a simple test using
PerformanceEvaluation, examining just the size of data on disk for 1G of
input data. The matrix below has some surprising results:

+--------------------+--------------+
| MODIFIER           | SIZE (bytes) |
+--------------------+--------------+
| none               |   1108553612 |
+--------------------+--------------+
| compression:SNAPPY |    427335534 |
+--------------------+--------------+
| compression:LZO    |    270422088 |
+--------------------+--------------+
| compression:GZ     |    152899297 |
+--------------------+--------------+
| codec:PREFIX       |   1993910969 |
+--------------------+--------------+
| codec:DIFF         |   1960970083 |
+--------------------+--------------+
| codec:FAST_DIFF    |   1061374722 |
+--------------------+--------------+
| codec:PREFIX_TREE  |   1066586604 |
+--------------------+--------------+

Where does a wayward soul look for guidance on which combination of the
above to choose for their application?

Thanks,
Nick
