WiredTiger supports several different compression libraries, it would be good to have a performance comparison between them using an established workload.
An obvious candidate for a workload is the YCSB configurations we are testing in Jenkins (http://build.wiredtiger.com:8080/job/mongodb-perf-ycsb-develop/plot/).
It would be interesting to get numbers comparing no compression, zlib, bzip2, snappy and lz4 (once it is merged into the main code line). The statistics worth knowing are:
- Total throughput for different operation types
- Latency numbers
- On disk size
It would potentially be interesting to generate some content that can be added to the benchmarks section of the wiki page https://github.com/wiredtiger/wiredtiger/wiki#benchmarks.
