#262 assigned enhancement

Add support for changing compression level to tools

Reported by: jpc2 Owned by: salcock
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: tools Version:
Keywords: Cc:


All of the libtrace tools that can create output files should have the ability to allow the user to change the output compression level. The default should also be something sensible, 6 or 1 would be obvious choices.

#1349 adds preliminary support for this to tracesplit. tracemerge still needs support. libtrace needs it's new libtraceio abstraction layer.

We're doing much better now - tracesplit, tracemerge, traceanon all support changing both the compression level and method.

We still need to do something about the tools that are shell-script wrappers around other tools, such as traceconvert and tracefilter. Currently these will do gzip level 1, but a bit more flexibility would be nice.
