Compression on IIS 6

Since this blog is closed for comments I have to add mine here:

I was looking for ways to compress javascripts and google just keep return to the tool that does the metabase editing. Turns out the MSDN library has the description for the metabase entries. The HTML equivalent of what I've read is here: iis/6/all/proddocs/en-us/ref_mb_hcfileextensions.mspx

IIS has htm, html and txt turned on for static compression so I've added js and css.

One more thing, turning it on does wonders. I am doing performance testing a test cycle without compression involves around 7000 packets. Turn it on make it drop to about 3500.
