ANSWERED Should I have LZO Compression turned off? (Viscosity)

Recommended Posts

I am wondering if AirVPN suggests LZO Compression, when I imported the config it had it set to [On (Adaptive)]

 

There are 2 other options also, just plain on and off. So do speeds increase with it off or on? What is the suggestion? And if I have it off does it effect anything?

--comp-noadapt When used in conjunction with --comp-lzo, this option will disable OpenVPN's adaptive compression algorithm. Normally, adaptive compression is enabled with --comp-lzo.

Adaptive compression tries to optimize the case where you have compression enabled, but you are sending predominantly uncompressible (or pre-compressed) packets over the tunnel, such as an FTP or rsync transfer of a large, compressed file. With adaptive compression, OpenVPN will periodically sample the compression process to measure its efficiency. If the data being sent over the tunnel is already compressed, the compression efficiency will be very low, triggering openvpn to disable compression for a period of time until the next re-sample test.

But I don't know whether it will have an effect on CPU/bandwidth usage. Give it a shot and report, might be interesting


Four simple things:
There's a guide to AirVPN. Before you ask questions, take 30 minutes of your time to go through it.

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here. It's the fallback DNS.
Running TOR exits is discouraged. They're subject to restrictions on the internet and harm all AirVPN users.

Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, you'll be unique among the mass again.
