Data compression


Resilio Connect Agents do not compress data during transfer by default. Data compression can be enabled with tunnel_compress_stream custom profile parameter. The parameter must be set in job profile so all the agents involved implement compression. Resilio Connect Agents use gzip algorithm to compress data pieces.

It can be useful in case you have extremely limited (or expensive) connection and high-profile CPUs on all the peers participating the transfer.

Talk to Support before enabling

Enabling data compression can cause some side effects like increased CPU usage or reduced transfer speed. It is strongly recommended to consult Resilio Support before enabling the option.
