Symptoms

The system might potentially retain a compression context, even though there is no data to be compressed or decompressed. This can affect the calculation of the load of the compression provider.

Impact

It affects the compression provider selection.

Conditions

-- A connection is up. -- Compression context is active. -- There is no data for the compression provider.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

The system now deselects a provider at the end of a compression/decompression operation, and reselects a provider at the beginning of another compression/decompression operation.
