Michele Catasta updated HBASE-2655:
-----------------------------------

    Attachment: HBASE-2655.patch

@stack: addressed the user experience problem you were talking about in HBASE-2681. I updated
the patch to let it depend on that code change (and the JIRA issue as well)

> 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.
