lz4 is growing in popularity as a compression algorithm. As of systemd
216, systemd-journald supports lz4 (in addition to xz). Benchmarks
were provided at the time Zbigniew wrote the patches to show the
impressive drop in CPU required to compress journal files.
There's already a feature request to enable this, and a complaint
about the excessive CPU usage of XZ in the presence of a program which
doesn't behave in some given environment.
So, with that, is anyone opposed to moving lz4 to [core] so that systemd
can sanely depend on it?
