HTTP compression

edited June 2014 in GSA Search Engine Ranker

I know it's used: Server > Client but is that it could be used in the direction Client > Server ?

With this kind of thing we would lose in latency, but we could use a lot more thread. I do not know if the server accepts this type of query ...

EDIT: "Compression as defined in RFC 26 can be applied to the response data from the server (but not to the request data from the client)"

    Portable Compression and HttpClient Working Together:

    This yields to a reduction by 77%

    Good ;)

    @Sven what you think's of that ?

    Thats already happening. All queries are made with the option to let the server compress it's packets. SER is uncompressing them (even fixing errors on that which real browsers do not) and works with it.

    Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate

    This is sent to the server and if it supports compression, it will send it packed.

    You really think of everything. 

    I think they can not deploy for upload to avoid network saturation as ddos. Can be that come when ipv6 will be more widespread. This is the logical continuation with the democratization of mobile internet connection. 

    thank you Sven.
