Image compression. Capture and deployment
Okay so my question is about compression. The slider on fog goes from 0-9. I understand that putting the slider all the way to 9 will create the smallest image size. So does that mean when I deploy it, it will be a lot faster?
In as simple terms as possible, no. We’ve found that the Goldilocks for compression is probably 5 or 6. This gives a semi balanced data across network and writing data to the hdd. The network throughout should be faster at max compression, but writing to disk takes a bit longer as it needs to decompress. Little/no compression is hell on network, but fast to write to disk as no/minimal decompression must happen.
