You also need to install Snappy - the Shared Object. I've done it using
"yum install snappy" on Fedora Core.

Yes you need to add the snappy libraries to hbase path (i think the
variable to set is called HBASE_LIBRARY_PATH)

I bet that your compression libraries are not available to HBase.. Run the

compression test utility and see if it can find LZO

That seems to be the case for SNAPPY. However, I do have snappy installed

and it works with hadoop just fine and HBase is running on the same

cluster. Is there something special I need to do for HBase?

Thanks! I was trying it out and I see this message when I use COMPRESSION,

but it works when I don't use it. Am I doing something wrong?

hbase(main):012:0> create 't2', {NAME => 'f1', VERSIONS => 1, COMPRESSION

=> 'LZO'}

ERROR: org.apache.hadoop.hbase.client.RegionOfflineException: Only 0 of 1

regions are online; retries exhausted.

hbase(main):014:0> create 't3', {NAME => 'f1', VERSIONS => 1}

Also, if I understand it correctly, this will enable the compression

right? For that, we need to run a major compaction of the table which

will rewrite all the cells and so compact them?

Yeah, although you may not want to recompact everything all at once in

a live system. You can just let it happen naturally through cycles of

flushes and compactions, it's all fine.
