mod_gzip is an external extension module for the WWW's most popular web server arrowApache, created in autumn, 2000.
Its implementation allows for using the compression method arrowgzip for a significant reduction of the volume of web page content served over the arrowHTTP protocol.
Currently mod_gzip uses the gzip compression level 6. This is hard-coded by the assignment gz1->level = 6 inside the function gz1_init.
The higher the compression level (gzip allows values between 1 and 9), the better the compression effect, but the higher the CPU time consumption as well. By adapting this compression level a user could solve the trade-off between CPU load and bandwidth saving according to his own requirements.
Own experiments have shown that level 3 already takes you near the effect of compression level 6 - at least the choice between these two values should be left to the user.
Thus it would be reasonable to have this compression level configurable by offering another directive mod_gzip_compression_level.
