I'm troubleshooting a few problems on our site and slow load time is one area I want to reduce.
Using Google's PageSpeed Insights, it reckons that some of the AJAX axd resource files associated with an autocomplete drop-down could be reduced by 933kb through compression.
Similarly, the .aspx page itself could be compressed for a further 85kb saving.
At first glance, IIS6 appears to be configured for compression (under the services tab for IIS > local computer > web sites > properties, "compress application files" and "compress static files" are ticked.
CSS and JS files weren't compressing until I used the info at http://www.jasonlinham.co.uk/2009/06/turn-on-iis-6-compression-for-css-and.html
What can I do to apply compression to my .aspx and .axd files?
The environment is dot net framework 4.0, IIS 6 on Windows server 2003, using Ajax Control Toolkit (specifically, just the Autocomplete Extender)
