Parameters for Data Compression

Prior to synchronization, the data transferred from the mobile device to the server and vice versa is automatically compressed. The compression uses the ZIP standard algorithm. The following parameters are available for configuration of data compression:

Parameters in MobileEngine.config




Activate or deactivate data compression in the client.

Possible values: false and true

Default value: true

(Data compression is active, even when the parameter in the file MobileEngine.config is not set explicitly.)

You can check if your settings are correct by switching on a trace prior to synchronization. After synchronization, the trace file contains a message text that tells you if data compression is switched on or off.

Data compression is switched on


Data compression is switched off


If you are using a mobile device with a Linux operating system, you can find more information in SAP Note 754221.
