So, I'm a bit of an IIS7 n00b but I've used most of the old IIS systems going back to 3. I'm trying to turn on dynamic compression and it's working, mostly. It doesn't work for my ADO.Net Data Service (Astoria) requests, batched or not.
I found the failed request (FREB) tracing which was really helpful. And what I see on unbatched requests is
Reason Code 12, NO_MATCHING_CONTENT_TYPE. OK, so I don't have the matching MIME type specified, that's easy.
Except this is what I have in my web.config (which I think is correct, but maybe not).
<httpCompression dynamicCompressionDisableCpuUsage="100" dynamicCompressionEnableCpuUsage="100" noCompressionForHttp10="false" noCompressionForProxies="false" noCompressionForRange="false" sendCacheHeaders="true" staticCompressionDisableCpuUsage="100" staticCompressionEnableCpuUsage="100"> <dynamicTypes> <clear/> <add mimeType="*/*" enabled="true" /> </dynamicTypes> <staticTypes> <clear/> <add mimeType="*/*" enabled="true" /> </staticTypes> </httpCompression> <urlCompression doDynamicCompression="true" doStaticCompression="true" dynamicCompressionBeforeCache="false" />
Now I think that this means it should compress any request that includes the Accept:Gzip header. I'd love to know what others might think here.
My fiddler trace:
