compression - set compression method

The compression directive sets which compression method will be used when a message is big and compression is needed.

It could be either zlib or bz2, depending on whether you have the corresponding library in the system. You can check  /usr/lib/heartbeat/plugins/HBcompress  to see what compression module is available.

If this directive is not set, there will be no compression.

compression    <bz2/zlib>
