Enormous payloads - enable compression on server?

Bradley_FlynnBradley_Flynn Customer IT Monkey ✭
Some pages are loading ~6MB of content - does anyone have any info on whether or not enabling dynamic/static compression in IIS 8.5 is acceptable in a SCSM environment?

    Are those pages the home pages with service catalog items?
    I found that the service catalog returns the json multi times with the images embedded in the json making it a really large file.

    Most pages are greater than 5MB - it looks like just the minified Kendo file is 2.5MB. Wondering if enabling dynamic compression in IIS is OK in SCSM, or if there are any issues in doing so?

    Thanks Jerry - this helped a bit to run those SP's. We also went ahead and enabled Dynamic Compression (GZip) in IIS and found that our page transfer sizes dropped to approximately half of what they were - with nearly 2 seconds of savings on page load times. WooHoo!
