Hello,

I have set up compression to On.

What is the bandwith that each user needs?.

What is better more bandwith or less latency (less ms in ping)?.

Thank you very much.

You will have to test this. Each application is different.

Again, this is somewhat application dependent. In general, though, I would
say that the latency is the most important factor. There are a lot of
requests that are very small and so the round trip cost is the big factor
and bandwidth does not play a big part. But it is certainly possible for
some applications to be much more dependent on bandwidth. If the
application reads and writes a lot of large BLOBs, then the bandwidth will
be very important. Or if an application does a lot of table scans (not a
good idea for an "Internet" application), each response from the server can
be relatively large. The default behavior for a Skip is to return 10
records, but that read-ahead size can be changed.
