Switching existing table to Snappy possible?
Otis Gospodnetic 2012-05-09, 21:06

Based on the example on http://hbase.apache.org/book/snappy.compression.html and some search-hadoop.com searches I'm guessing it's not possible to switch an existing HBase table to use Snappy.
i.e. a new table with snappy needs to be created and old data imported into this table.

Is this correct?
