Overview of the HTTP Compression profile

  • The virtual server reads the Accept-Encoding header of the HTTP request header from the client. Then it sends an HTTP request with the Accept-Encoding header removed to the server.
  • The virtual server inserts the Content-Encoding header with either gzip or deflate based on Accept-Encoding for the HTTP reply received from the server and sends the HTTP reply to the client.
