Issue #5183 has been updated by Martin Bosslet.

Target version changed from 1.9.x to 1.9.3

I can only repeat what Motohiro said the other day - thanks a lot
for your contribution, Eric!

I also backported this to 1.9.3, as I can only see benefit in this
patch.

It shouldn't affect the stability of 1.9.3. But please object if 
anyone thinks different, then I would revert the commit right away.

Feature #5183: [PATCH] openssl: add OP_NO_COMPRESSION constant
http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/5183

Author: Eric Wong
Status: Closed
Priority: Low
Assignee: Martin Bosslet
Category: ext
Target version: 1.9.3


Disabling OpenSSL compression can save memory since zlib buffers
enforce a rather large per-connection overhead.  For
memory-constrained systems that have OpenSSL built against zlib,
there can be a drastic reduction in memory usage with 1000 open
connections:

  Compression enabled
  VmRSS:	  596132 kB
  Compression disabled
  VmRSS:	   21924 kB

The above was generated with openssl 1.0.0.d-3 on Debian testing
(x86_64).  The NOCOMP environment variable controls compression
in the attached script.

If you prefer: git pull git://bogomips.org/ruby openssl-no-compression
