Statement introduced before Junos OS Release 7.4.
Compress the current operational configuration
file. By default, the current operational configuration file is compressed,
and is stored in the file
juniper.conf, in the
/config file system, along
with the last three committed versions of the configuration. However,
with large networks, the current configuration file might exceed the
available space in the
system. Compressing the current configuration file allows the file
to fit in the file system, typically reducing the size of the file
by 90 percent. The current configuration file is compressed on the
second commit of the configuration after the first commit is made
to include the compress-configuration-files statement.
We recommend that you enable compression of the router configuration files to minimize the amount of disk space that they require.
The current operational configuration file is compressed.
This command has no options.
