WT compression - zstd


we have default “snappy” as compression for our existing collection. we are looking it to change for “zstd”. Can we do this change without dump and restore whole collection?
Also my collection is sharded

Hi @Aayushi_Mangal

In brief, with your sharded replicasets. Reinitialize each node with the desired compressor configured. Wait until that node is in sync, then move to the next one.

I discussed in my reply with Eric migrating to zstd.
