SMX_COMPRESS configuration parameter

Use the SMX_COMPRESS configuration parameter to specify the level of compression that the database server uses before sending data from the source database server to the target database server.

Network compression saves network bandwidth over slow links but uses more CPU to compress and decompress the data. The SMX_COMPRESS configuration parameter values of the two servers are compared and changed to the higher compression values.

onconfig.std value
-1 = The source database server never compresses the data, regardless of whether or not the target site uses compression.

0 = The source database server compresses the data only if the target database server expects compressed data.

1 = The database server performs a minimum amount of compression.

9 = The database server performs the maximum possible compression.
