Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-15881) Allow BZIP2 compression
Date Wed, 25 May 2016 01:39:12 GMT

Andrew Purtell commented on HBASE-15881:
----------------------------------------

+1

I tried this once with LZMA, see HBASE-2987. We had trouble with LZMA specifically because
it is a super slow algorithm, HBASE-2988 was an attempt to address it. Bzip2 should compress
significantly faster in comparison. Even so 2988 would mitigate.

> BZIP2 is a very efficient compressor in terms of compression rate.
> Compression speed is very slow, de-compression is equivalent or faster than GZIP.
