Enabling HTTP Compression for Siebel Applications
You can specify whether, or when, the SWSE will compress HTTP traffic by setting the value of the
DoCompression parameter in the eapps.cfg file. Compressing HTTP traffic, where it is feasible to do so, substantially reduces bandwidth consumption. This feature is supported on HTTP 1.1, and is not supported on HTTP 1.0.
For detailed information about setting values for the
DoCompression parameter, see the Security Guide for Siebel Business Applications.
