[GRADLE-3441] BZIP2 compression extremely slow Created: 18/Apr/16 Updated: 19/Apr/16 Resolved: 19/Apr/16
BZIP2 compression extremely slow
I am working on migrating an Ant-based project to Gradle, and one sticking point is that the distTar task with compression = Compression.BZIP2 set is 5x slower than the equivalent Ant task.
Is this a known issue? Is there a good fix or workaround?
Edit: For a workaround, having Gradle make an uncompressed .tar and then bzipping with Ant speeds things up immensely:
distTar.compression = Compression.NONE

Wow, that was fast. Buffering FTW!
