-Bzip2 vs Gzip
Amit Sela 2013-09-17, 20:37
I'm using hadoop 1.0.4 and using gzip to keep the logs processed by hadoop
(logs are gzipped into block size files).
I read that bzip2 is splittable. Is it so in hadoop 1.0.4 ? Does that mean
that any input file bigger then block size will be split between maps ?
What are the tradeoffs between the two ?
