Using Advanced Data Compression (ADC), you can compress inbound and outbound data in your network. This process reduces network traffic and shortens inbound and outbound queuing times, which results in improved end-user response time. If data is already optimal in length, ADC ignores the data to conserve resources.

ADC also allows you to strip an application's extended attribute bytes from the data stream when they are not supported by the physical terminal.



How can I turn off CA TPX Advanced Data Compression?



To turn off compress outbound and/or inbound data for an application, specify N in the Outbound Compression and/or Inbound Compression field on the ACT.

 You can override the values you specify in the ACT on the Terminal Options Detail panel of the Terminal Options Table. Specify Y or N in the following fields to override existing values:

  • Override ACT, Outbound Compression On
  • Override ACT, Outbound Compression Off
  • Override ACT, Inbound Compression On
  • Override ACT, Inbound Compression Off

 You can use TPX batch to extract applications from the ACT where these fields are enabled using these variables:

  • ACTMDT  Inbound compression           
  • ACTCOMP  Outbound compression    


Additional Information:


This feature is described in the TPX 5.4 documentation Advanced Data Compression.
