How to compress the BLOB values in the PegaRULES database

Updated on September 10, 2021

Through a setting in the pegarules.xml file, you can enable or disable compression of the BLOB columns upon write to the PegaRULES database.

Suggested approach

An option has been added in the pegarules.xml file to enable or disable compression of the BLOB segments upon write to the PegaRULES database. The default of this switch is set to "false", meaning the data is not compressed upon write to the database.

To enable compression, change the value for DeflateStreams to "true." The pegarules.xml entry is as follows:

<node name="Compatibility">
<entry key="DeflateStreams" value="true"/>
