Enabling Compression

The Enable Compression check box is available in the Advanced Properties section of the Virtual Service modify screen. To access this screen, in the LoadMaster Web User Interface (WUI), go to Virtual Services > View/Modify Services and click Modify on the relevant Virtual Service.

If the Enable Compression option is selected, files sent from the LoadMaster are compressed with Gzip.

Note: If compression is enabled without caching, LoadMaster performance may suffer.


The types of file that can be compressed may be defined in System Configuration > Miscellaneous Options > AFE Configuration section of the LoadMaster WUI.


Note: Compression is not recommended for files 100MB or greater in size.
