my customer wants to use some Riverbead WAN Optimization-compression but for what I read WAN Compression can be disabled, I see when I create a VPG is enabled by default, is that Global setting or per VPG, and how to do it either globally o per VPGs
Yes – it is possible to disable WAN compression and it is configured on a per VPG basis.
Navigate to “Edit VPG” and to the “Replication” tab. You will see in the bottom a checkbox for ‘Enable WAN Traffic Compression’. Un-check this option for VPGs that you do not want to enable WAN compression.
I will ask product but I am not able to think of a scenario where having WAN compression enabled would adversely affect the replication.
This is just because we’re already compressing it, and then appliance is trying to compress compressed data.
in my case Disable compression was hidden I had to do a tweak as support said in order to have the option to be able to disable it
