Http compression

  Asked By: Nishita    Date: Feb 27    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 936

I was thinking of using http compression on our Sharepoint box. However, I
was unsure if the websites being served up are considered to be static or

I am guessing dynamic, if so, will the compression technique compress every
page that a user sees independent fro the others...I would think this would
fill up the designated file space pretty quickly.

Anyone messed with http compression on Sharepoint?

Just dont select compress application files. Compressing static  files is

From my experience, it only adds the http  Header: meta http-equiv="Pragma"
content="no-cache" to all the pages. If you set it to compress application
files it tries to add the above header to the HTTP stream from the dll files
and it actually ends up printing it to the broswer.

Will my users see a difference when using a phone line to access the portal?
I mean that is the point right? Will turnign on static  compression improve
asp page access?

I didnt notice alot of difference, but there wasnt any degredation. It
shouldnt hurt anything by enabling it. I have all my WWW boxes set to enable
compression on static  files.
