Subject [GitHub] spark issue #17303: [SPARK-19112][CORE] add codec for ZStandard
Date Wed, 15 Mar 2017 13:43:43 GMT
Github user tgravescs commented on the issue:
    this should not be needed just to use to write to hdfs.  The regular hadoop input/output
type formats have support for it if you are using the right version (I think hadoop 2.8).
    This seems to be adding the support to the for internal compression.
 From what I've heard zstd is better then the other codecs since it gives Gzip level Compression
with Lz4 level CPU usage.  So if you have  a job that had a ton of intermediate data or was
causing network issues you may want to use ztsd to get the gzip compression levels without
much cpu penalty.
     @dongjinleekr  It doesn't looks like you ran any manual tests on a real cluster?  It
would be nice to have some basic performance/compression numbers to show it actually working.
   Are you planning on actually using zstd in your spark deployment?
