Thank you very much Carlos.

In the document:

Which I take as my reference, there is not a single word about the parameter WireCompression.

It's clear now.

Look at firebird.conf for the parameter WireCompression.

Hello Carlos

Thank you for your answer.

In your article you has written about the benchmark with and without compression.

How you did that?

You have "FB 3 padrao" and "FB 3 compressao".

If I want to compare FB 3 against MySQL, Postegre, or whatever: how I can have compression enabled or disabled?

Thanks in advance.

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

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.
