Open your favorite text editor. Now get your cat or small child and induce them to play with the keyboard for 5 minutes or so. You now have a large random text file! ;)

One option is to just cat all your logs into a single file. Another is to download a collection of text files (like from Gutenberg) and try compressing them or joining them into a single large file to experiment on.

Can you please tell us what your zip parameters were? I would have done something like zip -9T "example.zip" sample.log (-t is just to test the integrity of the archive.).

And that is a plain text 1GB log file?
