I'm facing the problem that our lengthy CSS file (
129 KB) gets delivered by our ASP.NET web app (running on IIS 7.5 using .NET 4.0) compressed to
24 KB on my local server machine and
36 KB on both our staging and production sites. My local OS is Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise, the web servers run Windows Web Server 2008 R2.
I used the Fiddler to look into the requests but they seem not to differ in anything important, i.e.
Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate is sent to all servers and all reply with
Content-Encoding: gzip. All have static and dynamic compression enabled.
Does anybody have any idea what could be causing the difference in behavior?
