Subject Native LZ4 compressor installation
Date Thu, 28 Feb 2013 20:42:40 GMT

I am experimenting with cassandra 1.2.2 and are interested in using the
native LZ4 compressor in linux. I have built the linux library but aren't

Do I just drop it in the cassandra lib directory and change the compression
for my column family? How will I know if the native compressor is being

I'm particularly excited about this because it means the CPU's on our
servers will have spare CPU cycles due to LZ4 compressor being faster than
the snappy compressor.
