I have a 4 fibre trunk at 16Gb
A 2 fibre trunk at 16Gb
and a 2Gb trunk at 8Gb
Wondering if anyone with experience using compression between sites would recommend it to reduce bandwidth requirements.
Average compression ratio is 2:1.
There are limitations concerning number of ports supported per chip or trunk (32Gb/s max).
Depending your FOS version, FOS admin guide describe the different cases (section In flight encryption and compression overview).
This feature is used but as it is not in the default configuration, few user utilizes it without encryption.
still at 7.3.1d Will move to 7.4...soon.
