Subject Questions about compression
Date Thu, 26 Jan 2012 18:54:31 GMT
Hi,

I've a few questions concerning compression:

1) What are the steps to change the compression algorithm (e.g. LZO -> Snappy) for an existing
table?
2) How can I copy one table to another (same structure, different compression) in order to
make some tests beforehand? Is there any simple shell command for this task?
3) Just to get some insight: Are the rows in the memstores already compressed or does it happen
during a flash only?

Thanks
Yves
