    I'd like to be able to see (and change if desired) the chunk size sent to the gzip handler on litespeed. I am guessing it's set to around 2k right now by default, maybe 4k?

    Note this is not a complaint by any means, I've been very impressed with how smooth and light the gzip output was, just would like to see what it is doing and if an even better setting is possible for certain conditions. Smaller chunks under high loads would mean the visitor at least sees something on their browser right away even if the page load takes several seconds.

    We will work something out to have the partial page delivered as early as possible.

    Actually Litespeed already does that rather well, I've been very impressed how quickly a page starts to be seen compared to Apache 2 (and definitely Apache 1.3.x which can't do chunks with compression under mod_gzip, so there is always a long delay).

    I would just like to see the default setting and change it in certain special environments.
