Tune zstd parameters to decrease memory usage during streaming
Using the cached-microdesc-consensus that is:
valid-after 2017-11-21 11:00:00
I get the following results:
$ zstd cached-microdesc-consensus $ gzip -9 cached-microdesc-consensus $ du -h cached-microdesc-consensus* 1.9M cached-microdesc-consensus 564K cached-microdesc-consensus.gz 576K cached-microdesc-consensus.zst
It's only 2% larger, but I thought zstd was meant to produce smaller consensuses than gzip? Or did I get the compression settings wrong?
