Activate mod_deflate on smeserver
This contribution mod_deflate for smeserver is an optional module for the Apache HTTP Server, Apache v2 only. Based on Deflate lossless data compression algorithm that uses a combination of the LZ77 algorithm and Huffman coding. This module provides the DEFLATE output filter that allows output from Apache HTTP server to be compressed before being sent to the client over the network.
Install with the following command and it will install all of the required packages for you.
yum --enablerepo=smecontribs install smeserver-mod_deflate
then you should issue
signal-event post-upgrade; signal-event reboot
/sbin/e-smith/expand-template /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd-e-smith sigusr1
After that you can change the db parameter in a root terminal
config show modDeflate modDeflate=service level=9 status=enabled
The value must between 1 (less compression) and 9 (more compression). X=(1 to 9)
config setprop modDeflate level X config setprop modDeflate status enabled/disabled
yum remove smeserver-mod_deflate
