Hi Igor, thanks for your response!
>>If you comment gzip_buffers, you see the previous site state ?
If I comment gzip_buffers, gzip_min_length, and gzip_http_version, I see
the previous (desired) behavior.
>>What is typical uncompressed and compressed response size ?
Responses are 6.8k or smaller uncompressed, 2.6k compressed
(gzip_comp_level=9), 2.8k compressed (gzip_comp_level=1). About half of
the responses are this size, and the other half are less than 1k
We currently have more than adequate CPU and want to minimize bandwidth
costs, so I had assumed that more compression was better. Is there
another reason that I should stay with the default gzip_comp_level=1?
(I'm happy to try it--just curious.)
