gzip compression level

This setting allows you to set the gzip compression level for pigz, which is a gzip-compatible program that uses multiple CPU cores simultaneously.. Higher settings provide greater compression, but compress more slowly.

This setting's minimum value is 1 and the maximum value is 9. The default value is 6.


Number of pigz processes

This setting allows you to set how many independent pigz processes the system uses to perform gzip compression.

This setting's minimum value is 1 and the maximum value is 128. The default value is the number of processor cores on your server.




Number of kilobyte chunks per compression work unit

This setting allows you to control the size (in 1024-byte (B) chunks) of compression work units that the system distributes to each pigz process.

This setting's minimum value is 128. This setting defaults to 4096.
