Re: Understanding compression in hdfs
I'll dig into those classes to figure out my next step.

Anyway, I just realized the block-level compression has nothing to do with
HDFS blocks. An HDFS block can contain an unknown number of compressed
blocks, which makes my efforts kind of worthless.

thanks again!
