The WebAccelerator™ system can request gzip-encoded or deflate-encoded content from the origin web server to accelerate responses. When the Enable Assembly Compression OWS check box is selected (enabled), the WebAccelerator system sends an Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate header to the origin web server. The origin web server complies only if it supports the compression mode; otherwise, the origin web server provides uncompressed content.
This functionality occurs independently of selecting (enabling) the Enable Content Compression check box, which sets the compression for the response that the WebAccelerator system sends back to the client.
