ACE Compression and Performance

Unanswered Question
Mar 23rd, 2009

We are in the process of installing an ACE appliance for the purpose of compression and acceleration. We noticed aproximatly 50% reducation in sharepoint file download performance when we enabled compression.

Upon further investigation we noticed that we were having degraded performance without compression. We were able to resolve the issue without compression enabled by modifying TCP connection parameters.

Any thoughts on why performance is impacted with compression enabled or how to resolve this issue with compression.

Connection Parameters

parameter-map type connection TCP-Options


tcp-options selective-ack allow

tcp-options timestamp allow

tcp-options window-scale allow

Thanks in advance

I have this problem too.

We are also getting ready to start load balancing sharepoint.

What commands did you use to enable compression on the ace?

Do you need to enable sticky sessions in order to load balance your sharepoint front end servers?

Any other gotchas with sharepoint?
