Apache2 httpd improving performance mod_deflate gzip

How often do you think about improving performance of Apache2 httpd web-server? “It’s too slow”, “we need more powerfull server”, etc. Telling the truth, default settings of Apache2 aren’t good and it’s best to try optimizing those first, before thinking of more advanced solutions.

Mod_deflate in apache2 is pretty much the same as mod_gzip in apache1.3, and mod_deflate is included with the apache2 source package. Both modules allow compressing of the apache server on the fly

It’s simillar to nginx settings gzip_comp_level. So, I have Apache2 httpd with great perfomance improvement with DeflateCompressionLevel.
