News

    • a first meeting on Wednesday (Core Software slot) with git mini tutorial and workflows proposals
    • at the Tuesday meeting on the 15th of December more focused on the workflows

Study on ROOT compression algorithms

Interesting results.

To follow up, it would be very useful to propose the new compression algorithms to the ROOT team.

It's interesting that the lzma compression gives a penalty in reading time. The new results should be compared with Chris' findings and possibly repeated on DSTs.

Round Table
