Subject Re: Understanding ORC file format compression
Date Sun, 21 Jun 2015 08:03:25 GMT
Hi Sreejesh,
The data in an ORC file is divided into stripes and in these stripes columns are divided into
column groups.
The compression is at the column group level, so to answer your question ORC files are splittable
no matter the codec used.
