Faster Compression for Backups

New compression levels for dumping databases and transactions provide faster, more complete, and less CPU-intensive compression.

Two new compression levels have been added to the dump database...compression= anddump transaction...compression= commands: 100 and 101. Compression level 100 provides faster compression; level 101 provides better compression. Both new compression levels are less CPU-intensive than levels 0 – 9.

See the System Administration Guide and the Reference Manual: Commands.
