Anybody ever test the gzip compression feature ?

I have it on by default but I often wonder if its actually doing any good. Anyone ever do timings ? If so I'd love to hear the results.

THanks,

Justin

No i'd neither do timing nor check the size difference between an uncompressed and a gzip compressed traffic. I only saw it in the headers to be published and was affected by the IE bug in conjunction with gzip and no-cache headers (pragma...)

Thanks.. I may just shut it off and see what happens. I'm thinking that the GZIP may do more harm then good. Especially when the box has to try and compress traffic that is already compressed.

Anyone else have any experience good or bad with disabling GZIP Compression on the appliance ?
