Compression Tools Compared
The -1c tells lzop to use compression level 1 and to write to standard output. -d tells it to decompress. Even with this minimal compression, you still might increase your hardware's effective bandwidth by 75%.
For network connections and CPUs falling in the graph's black region, don't compress at all. Simply send it.
If you want even more performance, you may want to try calling a C compression library from your own program.
