Property Value

Type: System. . :: . .Int16
The compression level that has been set.


The CompressionLevel property allows you to customize compression to meet your specific needs. A lower value causes the compressor to run more quickly, but the data transmitted is not a tightly compressed and therefore takes longer to transmit. A higher compression level value will cause more processing on the server running IIS, but will reduce data transfer times.

The actual amount of data compression depends on the type of data being compressed.

A value of 0 turns off all compression. The default value is 1, which uses the lowest amount of processor time while still providing some compression. The maximum value is 6.
