Offloading compression : Compressing HTTP responses
Compressing HTTP responses
To offload compression from your back-end servers for performance tuning that delivers faster replies to clients, you can configure FortiADC to compress HTTP responses instead.
Not all responses should be compressed. Compression offers the greatest performance improvements when applied to URLs whose media types compress well, such as repetitive text such as tagged HTML, and scripts such as JavaScript. Files that already contain efficient compression such as GIF images usually should not be compressed, as the CPU usage and time spent compressing them will result in an increased delay rather than network throughput improvement. Plain text files where no words are repeated, such as configurations with unique URLs or IPs, also may not be appropriate for compression.
To configure compression, go to Server Load Balance > Resources > Compression.
