Question

HTTP compression

There is an existing question in community about disabling HTTP compression but I don't think it was answered in terms of performance impact on application.

https://community1.pega.com/community/pega-support/question/disable-http-compression-dynatrace

We would like to know what is the pega recommendation about enable/disable HTTP compression. And what is the expected impact on application performance if we enable/disable HTTP compression.

Hi Bhanu,

HTTP Compression. HTTP compression allows content to be compressed on the server before transmission to the client. For resources such as text this can significantly reduce the size of the response message, leading to reduced bandwidth requirements and download times.

Hence, If we disable http compression there could be a slight delay in showing an information in the UI.
