Compression Mappings

MapR-DB binary tables support the LZ4, LZF, and ZLIB compression algorithms.

When you create a MapR-DB binary table with the Apache HBase API or the HBase shell and specify the LZ4, LZO, or SNAPPY compression algorithms, the table uses the LZ4 compression algorithm.

When you describe a MapR-DB binary table's schema through the HBase API, the LZ4 and OLDLZF compression algorithms map to the LZ4 compression algorithm.
