just wondering wether you can use gzip-compression bound to the frontend (the communication between End User –> HAproxy (which redistributes to 3 webservers). I tried to pass through
"compression algo gzip
but i could not establish a single compressed connection.
Does HAProxy-Devel support gzip at all? Or does ist have to be compiled against gzip or something? If so - how can I accomplish it?
Thank you very much =)
haproxy-devel is compiled with zlib 1.2.3
you can check by running "haproxy -vv" on a ssh/console shell.
adding this to a stats page shows that its compressed when requesting it from firefox..
compression algo gzip compression type text/html text/plain
you are using frontend type 'http' ?
