Subject RE: Compression and SSL
Date Tue, 03 Nov 2009 00:18:20 GMT
Thanks for all the suggestions so far guys.
Are there any other tips I could provide to the developers that they can
do to improve throughput?
Should they hard-code the http:// for all the static elements to avoid
passing them over SSL, or do my security constraints take care of that?
(I doub it.)
The original URL gets redirected to https immediately, so I'm thinking
everything from there on out is SSL.  Correct?
Can I get more granular?  I'd be happy for a pointer to a good reference
on the subject.

It's bandwidth and latency.
