I have an application that is using GZIP compression, which is implemented in a third-party library. This library has a significant impact on processor utilization.

When I disabled this library and enabled Dynamic Compression module in IIS instead, I noticed that ASP.NET Applications Request / Sec counter values are lower than before, and I don’t understand why.

  • Network traffic is the same;
  • Number of sessions in load balancer is the same;
  • Number of queries to DB is the same.

From the application side, I do not see any problems.
