Compress Transfer N/A. Why? - jotrys - 02-17-2018 12:34 AM

Result of the test: https://www.webpagetest.org/result/180216_9Z_c10e286fc89f5bc434e89b3b85b2896b/

Result on main page for the Compress Transfer is N/A.
The text for it in the Performance Review tab is:
"Use gzip compression for transferring compressable responses: N/A"

a) I checked if I had gzip compression on with Chromes DevTools and it shows it as HAVING gzip compression.
b) Also checked for gzip compression via Check GZIP compression (https://checkgzipcompression.com/) Result of this check: It is compressed.
c) checked old logs of webpagetest.org tests and there result for Compress Transfer is an A!

What is the reason for the N/A now?

It's fine. You only have one external script that isn't gzipped and it's up to them whether they do it or not.

Thanks for that avalanch!

Good to know that Gtmetrix provides the missing info as to the gzip compression.
