Add support for Zstandard Compression #438

Hadoop added support for the Zstd compression library in version 2.9.0

Zstandard was open source'd by Facebook a few years ago and looks like a nice improvement over gzip (better compression ratio and speed) and snappy (better compression ratio).

It looks like the 2.9.0 and 3.0.2 binary distributions of Hadoop were not built with Zstandard library. So this will require building Hadoop with -Pdist,native and -Drequire.zstd flags.

Tips for building Hadoop (I was able to build 2.9.0 on Fedora 27):

  • Required manual compilation and install of Protocol buffers 2.5.0. First did a "dnf remove protobuf-compiler" to make things easier.
  • Will fail to build with OpenSSL 1.1.0 so either patch or use 1.0.2
  • Fedora packages required: cmake openssl-devel make automake gcc gcc-c++ libzstd

@ctubbsii ctubbsii added v2.0.0 and removed v1.9.1 labels May 8, 2018

@ctubbsii ctubbsii added this to Done in 2.0.0 Jun 14, 2019
