How to understand & configure Compression
To permit or block specific file extensions from being compressed by the LoadMaster when compression is enabled within a Virtual Service, navigate to System Configuration > Miscellaneous Options > AFE Configuration > Compression Options in the LoadMaster Web User Interface (WUI).
By default, the LoadMaster compresses any files with a file extension that is not listed in bold under Compression Options as seen in Figure 1.1.
