Adaptive Online Data Compression


Quickly transmitting huge data in the context of distributed computing on wide area network can be achieved by compressing data before transmission. However, such an approach is not efficient when dealing with high-speed networks. Indeed, the time to compress a large file and to send it is greater than the time to send the uncompressed file. In this paper, we propose an algorithm that allows to overlap communications with compression and to adapt the compression ratio according to the network speed (the slower the network, the more we use efficient and slow compression algorithms). The advantage of such an adaptive algorithm is its generality and that its suitability for a large set of applications.
