lz4-1.1.0.jar    is used by Cassandra. I've just found the native library embedded in the jar file. I'll 
check in the morning if some sort confirmation is shown.

Hello,

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 sure how to tell tell cassandra to use it.

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 used?

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.
