When a session is running, the following session statistics are displayed in the X Servers status area in the Compression column.
Compression statistics are shown when compression is active (Compression = Yes). These statistics can help you determine the best configuration where low bandwidth is a problem.
Compression data is shown as name = value pairs. The following information is shown:
Total original bits = bit count of protocol entering the compressor
Total encoded bits = bit count of protocol exiting the compressor
Compression ratio = Original bits / Encoded bits:1
Compression overhead = percentage of non-compression-related bits in encoded bit%
Headless X Server Statistics
Headless X Server statistics are shown where the server is a locally connected headless server. These statistics can help you determine the best configuration where high latency is a problem.
Headless server -- identifies the server as a Headless X server (an X server with no visible display)
Total requests = count of all protocol requests
Short-circuited requests = count of all query requests (percentage of all requests%)
Round-trips saved = count of instances where clients waited for a query response
Total bits = bit count of all protocol requests and responses
Short-circuited bits = bit count of all query requests and responses (percentage of total bits%)
