Re: [firebird-support] Firebird 3 compression data My article at fbnews talks only about wire protocol compression.

I guess you are talking about data compression on the database file, right? If so, afaik, some "new" algorithms are being tested/benchmarked and may be available in FB in the future, resulting in a better compression than the actual "RLE", but I guess it will not be in FB 3.0

Firebird Performance in Detail - -

According to this (very good) news,

Firebird 3 can have compression of data.


However neither in the above page neither in the "Firebird 3.0 Release Notes"

says how to compress data. Just that was implemented by Alex Peshkov.

So, the evident question is:

How to have data compressed?

Of course, I am talking about Firebird 3.
