ISA 2006 shuts down access to my webserver and gives me an compression filter error in the event viewer.

ISA 2006 shuts down access to my webserver and gives me an compression filter error in the event viewer.

The Compression filter cannot handle a response because the allocated memory currently used for compression reached its limit. The memory allocated for compression is specified by the following  registry values...

what are the consequences of turning the compression filter off? can i fix this problem and leave the compression filter on?

The cause of the error is likely on your own site - something is providing a compressed data stream and ISA doesn't know how to uncompress it. quite a common issue although I have not seen it shut a webserver down before. Sure, give it a try with compression filter disabled. Its normally only used if the other end supports it anyway.

install .net 1.1 on the isa box and run up the bpa. Sounds like there may be a wider issue here.

As an aside, how much memory is installed in the isa system? Open the task manager and see what processes are using the most memory - I've seen this once before when the sql server procs ran away with themselves and took all the available ram.

No response from the asker - I have described the function of the compression filter and suggested the tool to analyse underlyinbg issues. Delete by all means but not with a refund
