Can I use HTTP Compression to speed up my Web Applications?
SAP NetWeaver BI Web Applications cause a relatively high network load during an uncompressed transfer.
If you are running SAP BW 3.0B Web Applications / Web Queries you should switch on HTTP Compression, especially if you experience a slow network connection in WAN scenarios.
You can reduce the network load by using compressed transfer which is especially helpful for large datasets (such as in the case of SAP NetWeaver BI Web Applications, for example).
From Support Package 6 onwards you will only need to apply the note 550669.
