LZJB is a lossless data compression algorithm invented by Jeff Bonwick to compress crash dumps and data in ZFS. It includes a number of improvements to the LZRW1 algorithm, a member of the Lempel-Ziv family of compression algorithms. The name LZJB is derived from its parent algorithm and its creator--Lempel Ziv Jeff Bonwick. Bonwick is also one of two architects of ZFS, and the creator of the Slab Allocator.
