Subject adding compression to a table
Date Wed, 18 Aug 2010 13:35:23 GMT
Can I add record level compression to a preexisting table?  Will old 
rows be compressed or only new rows?

For example, if I use the hbase shell and disable, alter {...COMPRESSION 
=> 'gz'....}, enable....  Do I need to run a compaction as well?

Or do I need to create a new table?
