|Enable Ambari Server to download and install GPL Licensed LZO packages?||Use this option to enable LZO compression in your HDP/HDF cluster. LZO is a lossless data compression library that favors speed over compression ratio. Ambari does not install nor enable LZO compression libraries by default, and must be explicitly configured to do so. For more information, refer to Enabling LZO in Ambari documentation.||Optional and only available if using Ambari 18.104.22.168 or newer.||Disabled.|
