LSLB and gzip compression?


Active Member
I can enable gzip compression on the load balancer or on the http nodes. But I'm not sure what is best?

If I enable http compression on the nodes, I can have litespeed webserver cache gzip compressed files.
If I enable http compression on the load balancer, I cannot have a cache (not supported until lslb 2.0).

But what happens if I disabled compression on lslb and enable it on the nodes? Will lslb just pass the compressed pages? Or will lslb server uncompressed pages to the visitors?

gzip compression takes resources..

in your recommendation as I understand having the compression in the webserver is better in terms of performance?
