Compression in Rugby?

 [1/1] from: petr::krenzelok::trz::cz at: 9-Feb-2002 18:47

Hi Maarten and all, looking at Rugby sources it seems to me that every transfer is compressed by default? Could it be the reason for nearly 30% slowdown in comparison to older Rugby releases? I think that compressing stubs code by default is a win, as shown in example with GoRim - 46 vs 6 KB of transferred code. Let's imagine I will send some binary data, e.g. mp3 file. Compression can consume too much time and can turn into being uneffective. I think that it would be good to let it to user level, to decide if compress or not. Compressing internal Rugby transfers (get-rugby-service ...) is probably a good step though ... Anyone? -pekr-
