Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to AOLServer support HTTP 1.1 Pipelining

Posted by Joel Natividad on
Thanks Don,
While we're on the subject of HTTP acceleration as a "cheap" way to improve the user experience, has anybody else deployed Jerry Asher's rlreturnz gzip encoding for AOLserver? (much like mod_gzip for Apache)

Also, if its stable enough, are there any plans of putting it in the OpenACS AOLServer distribution?

Some links you may want to check:

Right now, we're running a text-heavy press site - a great candidate for html gzip pre-encoding, and I'd like to increase the responsiveness of the site, especially since the traffic spikes up dramatically when breaking news is announced on the site.
