I am trying to configure compression on my websites.  How is the best way to verify that the compression is working?  I've use YSLOW and it says that the content is not compressing.  Any ideas on how to best troubleshoot this on the WAF?

open the developer tools of your favourite browser and check the network "tab". There, you will see a difference in size between transferred and size if the file has been compressed. Also, in the response headers, the header Content-Encoding should show gzip.
