Hi again! How can be sure that the pages are realy gzipped ?

2006/11/23, Bieringer, Dominik <DBieringer@thegoldensource.com>:

Hi Adrian,

 

I am using the following attributes for the <Connector/> tag in my server.xml file:

 

compression= "on" compressionMinSize= "2048" noCompressionUserAgents= "gozilla, traviata" compressableMimeType= "text/html,text/xml" />

 

This works for me.

Dominik

Any tips how i can GZip my pages?!?

2006/11/23, Bieringer, Dominik < DBieringer@thegoldensource.com>:

Okay,

GZipping is working, and it is worth using it... it reduces the size of my page from about 400/500 kb to about 80/90 kb. ;)

I was using it before, but I didn't thought of it when complaining about page size....

Sorry, me again-   as far as stats go, you could use wget and just check the
resulting file size.

If you are interested in more control, and in caching gzipped responses in
your server, see ehcache:
http://ehcache.sourceforge.net/EhcacheUserGuide.html

It contains a GzipFilter and the ability to do page caching and page
fragement caching.  This means for commonly accessed dynamic pages that you
want to refresh for everybody once every N minutes, you can cache the
gzip'ed response, which leads to very high throughput.

Of course, none of this is directly MyFaces/JSF related.. so I'll shut up
now :)

Daniel.

Hi again Dominik,

If you have wget (command line tool on linux, I think it's available for
windows too), you can do this:

wget --header "accept-encoding: gzip" --save-headers
"http://your.site.here/"

Then if you open up the response back, it will have a Content-Encoding of
gzip and the contents will be binary/unintelligible.

If you don't have wget, you could use the LiveHttpHeaders add-on for
Firefox, or something similar that lets you inspect the Http Headers.  I
don't have that plugin anymore, so only tried with wget.

Hope that helps,
Daniel.

Hi Daniel,

CPU cycles are not really a concern, I think I've already added the
corresponding attribute vor gzip encoding in server.xml on tomcat, but I'm
not sure if it is used...

Is there a way to check wheter gzip encoding is used or not? Is there a way
to see some stats... e.g.: the compression ratio, etc.?

Thx for the answer,
Dominik

Dominik,

As well as the upgrade to the nightly build, you should also consider
enabling GZIP-encoding on your web server for production deployment.  You
can either do this with apache/mod_gzip running out the front or by using a
GzipFilter in your web app.

If CPU cycles are a concern, then apache/mod_gzip on a separate load
balancing server may be the preferred option.

Daniel.

Upgrade to the latest nightly build - link sizes are much smaller there.

regards,
