LZO Compression Library
This library allows you to use LZO compression as compared to the inflate/deflate compression used by default by dynaTrace. LZO requires less CPU but the resulting amount of data is higher.

LZO compression is a tradeoff between default inflate/deflate and uncompressed communication regarding CPU utilization and compression-rate.
The core LZO compression algorithm has been developed by Markus Franz Xaver Johannes Oberhumer, see http://www.oberhumer.com/opensource/lzo/.
How to configure LZO compression between dynaTrace Server and dynaTrace Client
Shutdown the Server and Client and copy the shared library to the
<dynaTrace_home>\tools\lib directory on server- as well as on client-side. Start the Server and connect the Client. Beginning with Dynatrace 3.5.1 compression is enabled automatically. For older versions you have to enable compression manually. To do so, open the
"Server Preferences" dialog in the Client and choose the menu item
"Connectivity". Choose the checkbox
"enable data compression" to enable compression for communication between Server and Client.

Disconnect and reconnect the Client to finish the LZO compression installation.
How to configure LZO compression between dynaTrace Server and dynaTrace Collector
Shutdown the Server and Collector and copy the shared library to the
<dynaTrace_home>\tools\lib directory on server- as well as on collector-side. The dynaTrace Collector's setup is stored in collector.config.xml located in the ./conf/ directory of the
The default collector.config.xml looks as follows having the compress attribute set to true:
The setup of LZO data compression between the Server and the Collector is finished.
