    Description

      Unlike gzip, the bzip file format supports splitting. Compression is by blocks (900k by default) and blocks are separated by a synchronization marker (a 48-bit approximation of Pi). This would permit very large compressed files to be split into multiple map tasks, which is not currently possible unless using a Hadoop-specific file format.
