Subject Enable Compression on a Table
Date Wed, 19 Jan 2011 00:57:04 GMT
Ahoy Hoy,
	I have several tables I setup when I first learned HBase and I didn't enable compression.
These tables are in use. I was wondering if it is possible to enable LZO compression 'on the
fly'. I read you can disable the table and then alter it and I tried that on a test table
and it seemed to work. If I enable compression on a large table what sort of issues should
I look for? What are the recommended steps?
