Nice-to-have: SSH compression

Postby Mr Query » Wed Apr 20, 2016 9:54 am

When using an SSH tunnel, the server is often located far away, and network traffic speed starts to get more relevant. Compression then starts to make sense to keep things responsive, especially for large result sets.

For the record,

it can already be done for some database connection types. For example, with MySQL, you can add a connection property:

useCompression = true

Yes. But compression can be made on database protocol level, not on SSH level.
SSH-level compression is tricky..
