Enable snappy compression by default for InnoDB page compression

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      Snappy is one of the options for InnoDB page compression, but it is not usually enabled in our builds:

      https://mariadb.com/kb/en/innodb-page-compression/#checking-supported-innodb-page-compression-algorithms

      The MariaDB ColumnStore storage engine has libsnappy as a dependency:

      $ sudo rpm -q --requires MariaDB-columnstore-engine | grep snappy
      libsnappy.so.1()(64bit)
      $ sudo rpm -qa | grep -i snappy
      snappy-1.1.0-3.el7.x86_64
      

      If one of our packages already has libsnappy as a dependency, then would it make sense to enable it by default for InnoDB page compression in some new GA version?
