[C++] lz4 codec is not compatible with Hadoop Lz4Codec




      As described in HADOOP-12990, the Hadoop Lz4Codec uses the lz4 block format, and it prepends 8 extra bytes before the compressed data. I believe that lz4 implementation in parquet-cpp also uses the lz4 block format, but it does not prepend these 8 extra bytes.


      Using Java parquet-mr, I wrote a Parquet file with lz4 compression:

      $ parquet-tools meta /tmp/f4a1c7f57cb1c98c2b9da3b25b16d027df5d2f1cf55adb79374c154fbd79011f

      When I attempted to read this file with parquet-cpp, I got the following error:

      >>> import pyarrow.parquet as pq
      >>> pq.read_table('/tmp/f4a1c7f57cb1c98c2b9da3b25b16d027df5d2f1cf55adb79374c154fbd79011f')

      https://github.com/apache/arrow/issues/3491 reported incompatibility in the other direction, using Spark (which uses the Hadoop lz4 codec) to read a parquet file that was written with parquet-cpp.


      Given that the Hadoop lz4 codec has long been in use, and users have accumulated Parquet files that were written with this implementation, I propose changing parquet-cpp to match the Hadoop implementation.
