I personally don't think it's something that should be implemented in PostgreSQL core. As a third-party TCP-proxy (on both client and server sides) with gzip/lz4 support perhaps. I'll be not surprised if it turns out that such projects already exist. -- Best regards, Aleksander Alekseev http://eax.me/ -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
