We have a frame-relay PVC between 7506 in Main Office and 3660 in Branch Office with CIR of 1Mb. PVC utilization sometimes overcome CIR. We are testing frame relay payload compression with FRF9 standard to optimize PVC utilization.
Well, We have configured compression in both sides, all seems to work fine, 3660 sends compressed traffic to 7506, but I suspect that 7506 are sending all traffic uncompressed to 3660. This is Main Office show compress output :

There have been a few bugs with FRF.9 compression, and more than a few bugs with the output of "show compress". I'm not sure what version of code you are at, but I would suggest that you ensure you have recent code to reduce the chance of you seeing a bug which has already been resolved.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
