Configuring TCP Compression Policies

Dec 16, 2013

You can configure TCP compression policies for an application to increase the performance of the application. TCP compression reduces network latency, reduces bandwidth requirements, and increases the speed of transmission. When configuring a TCP compression policy, you associate a compression action with the policy. The compression action specifies either Compress, GZIP, Deflate, or NoCompress as the compression type. For more information about the compression policies, and compression actions, see NetScaler Gateway , Enterprise Edition at http://edocs.citrix.com/.

To configure a TCP compression policy for a resource in the NetScaler Gateway Applications node

  1. In the navigation pane of the NetScaler configuration utility, expand AppExpert, and then click Access Gateway Applications.
  2. In the details pane, in the TCP Compression column, click the icon for the application, file share, intranet subnet, or resource for which you want to configure a TCP compression policy.
  3. In the Configure TCP Compression Policies dialog box, do the following:
    • To specify an existing TCP compression policy, click Insert Policy, and then, in the Policy Name column, click the name of the policy.
    • To create a new TCP compression policy, click Insert Policy, and then, in the Policy Name column, click New Policy. In the Create TCP Compression Policy dialog box, in the Policy Name box, after the underscore (“_”), type a name for the policy. Then, in Action, either select an existing action or click New and configure a new action. You can also click View to view the configured compression type.

      For more information about configuring a TCP compression policy or action, see NetScaler Gateway , Enterprise Edition at http://edocs.citrix.com/.

    • To modify a policy that you have inserted, in the Policy Name column, click the policy name, and then click Modify Policy.
    • To regenerate the priorities assigned to the policies, click Regenerate Priorities.
    • To specify a new priority value for a policy, in the Priority column, double-click the assigned priority, and then enter the value you want.
    • To unbind a policy, click the policy, and then click Unbind Policy.
  4. Click Apply Changes, and then click Close.
