hi Ran,
I think there's no compression on the sever end. I am doing the gzip compression on the client side myself.
 
cheers,

What sort of compression (if any) is performed by cassandra?
Does the thrift client compress anything before sending to the server to preserve bandwidth?
Does the server compress the values in the columns to preserve disk or memory?

... I assume compaction, performed on the server side, is different than compression... however, does compaction include any compression features as well?

Thanks
