Chapter 5. Configuring LZO Compression

LZO is a lossless data compression library that favors speed over compression ratio. Ambari does not install nor enable LZO Compression by default. To enable LZO compression in your HDP cluster, you must Configure core-site.xml for LZO.

Optionally, you can implement LZO to optimize Hive queries in your cluster for speed. For more information about using LZO compression with Hive, see Running Compression with Hive Queries.
