Compression STAC or Predictor , How to tell ?

How can I tell what compression algorithms the interface use ?

Since both predictor and stac use software compression.

predictor Specifies that a predictor (RAND) compression algorithm will be used on LAPB and PPP encapsulation. Compression is implemented in the software installed in the router's main processor.

stac Specifies that a Stacker (LZS) compression algorithm will be used on LAPB, HDLC, and PPP encapsulation. For all platforms except Cisco 7200 series and platforms that support the VIP2, compression is implemented in the software installed in the router's main processor.

Router# show compress

Re: Compression STAC or Predictor , How to tell ?

Hi, the first show command hasn't compression enabled and the second has hardware compression.

See next url for examples at interfaces with software compression enabled:
