Description

17 years ago
syncshadowdb dump files can be big, and installations may not have space for
them.  syncshadowdb could reduce their size significantly by compressing them
with, say, gzip.

b.m.o. recently had a space problem, and I hacked syncshadowdb to do compression
to save space.  I will revert to not using compression sometime this week once I
make sure we have enough space again, and note that compression significantly
reduces performance (syncall takes almost twice as long on b.m.o. with it turned
on), so I'm ambivalent about this enhancement.  Nevertheless, in the interests
of not losing code and making things available to people who could use it, I am
at least adding it to Bugzilla.
