Add plzip? (parallel version of lzip)

Postby frief » 26 Oct 2016, 14:14

Can plzip, the parallel version of lzip be included?

The page http://www.nongnu.org/lzip/xz_inadequate.html convinced me that it would be better to use lzip instead of xz or gzip compression for a backup.
Unfortunately the non-parallel version both of lzip would take too long for me.

The combination of a 500GB disk and an old CPU and

Code: Select all

dd if=/dev/sda | pigz -c -3 >xx_YYYYMMDD.img.gz
does not finish overnight if I use lzip (or xz) instead of pigz

Thanks for SystemRescueCd!
