Should we gzip on servre while this is performed on CF?

gzip server side VS on CF

Wouldn’t it be duplicate work (wasting resources) to gzip on server while CF will gzip/brotli ?

I d prefer to compress the traffic from its origin. But I like how CF gzip/Brotil. So, not sure which is the more efficient way

I’d rather leave it “as-is” from the origin, therefore let and leverage the Cloudflare handle the job and load via Brotli feature, which otherwise my server would have to do it :wink:

in that case the traffic will travel uncompressed to the first CF pop and there it will be Brotli compressed.
is it correct that the compression will take place at the first pop ?
