Checking the Effectiveness of Autocompression

To check the effectiveness of autocompression, use the SHOWBLOCKS command of the Ferret utility to compare the size of the data or a sample of the data stored with and without compression. You should also compare the performance with and without compression to measure the benefits of each.

SHOWBLOCKS is documented in Utilities: Volume 1 (A-K).
