Objectives:

You will learn about compression utilities speed vs compression rate.

Instructions:

Time Required: 30 minutes

  1. Use Ubuntu VM or Subsystem to create a new directory with the name ec4 Navigate to the new directory Take a screenshot
  2. Create a new text file and name it mylargefile.txt and type your first and last name 100 times in the created text file as follows:
  3. Take a screenshot then save the large text file and Exit.
  4. Tar the large text file “mylargefile.txt” using the three utilities learned in lesson
    11 by typing:
    tar -czf gzarchive.tar.gz mylargefile.txt tar -cjf bz2archive.tar.bz2 mylargefile.txt tar -cJf xzarchive.tar.xz mylargefile.txt
    Take a screenshot showing all three commands above.
  5. Type ls -la to get a detailed view of your files and Take a screenshot
  6. What is the size of each one of the three compressed archives (gzarchive.tar.gz, bz2archive.tar.bz2, xzarchive.tar.xz) in Kilobytes ? _______________________________________________________________
          _______________________________________________________________ 
  7. Run the following commands to check the compression time using the three compression utilities:
    time bzip2 -1v bz2archive.tar.bz2
    time gzip -1v gzarchive.tar.gz
