Re: Snappy compression with pig
Have you tried setting output compression to Snappy for Store?

grunt> set output.compression.enabled true;
grunt> set output.compression.codec org.apache.hadoop.io.compress.SnappyCodec;

You should be able to read and write Snappy compressed files with
PigStorage which uses Hadoop TextInputFormat internally.
