Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-2655) 2-pass compression support
Date Wed, 02 Jun 2010 15:09:41 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-2655?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12874603#action_12874603

stack commented on HBASE-2655:

@Pirroh Ignore my questions in previous issue.  I see 'BMZ' here.

So, if bmz is not available, we'll just keep throwing runtime exceptions?

I wonder if instead we should fall back to default no-compression w/ a warn that bmz is missing.

Good stuff.

> Quoting from BigTable paper: "Many clients use a two-pass custom compression scheme.
The first pass uses Bentley and McIlroy's scheme, which compresses long common strings across
a large window. The second pass uses a fast compression algorithm that looks for repetitions
in a small 16 KB window of the data. Both compression passes are very fast—they encode at
100-200 MB/s, and decode at 400-1000 MB/s on modern machines."
> The goal of this patch is to integrate a similar compression scheme in HBase.
