Re: Creating compressed data with scooop
Hi Santosh,
Sqoop is delegating compression/decompression to mapreduce framework. Thus Sqoop options might be overridden by your Mapreduce configuration (for example by setting that mapreduce output can't be compressed).

Would you mind sharing with us your:

* Hadoop version
* Sqoop version
* TaskTracker configuration file (mapred-site.xml)
* Job XML (~ configuration file) for job generated by Sqoop

I'm particularly looking for:

* io.compression.codecs - Must contain codes you're using with Sqoop
* mapred.compress.map.output - Must be set to true on Job XML level and must not be set to final false in TaskTracker configuration
