Hi,

It is set to Lz4 by default, however it is not present in UI. To check compression settings use the command:

Code: Select all

veeamconfig job info --name JobName
To set another value use:

Code: Select all

veeamconfig job edit --compressionLevel 4 for --name JobName
Compression levels:

0 - none, 1 - Rle, 2 - Lz4, 3 - ZlibLow, 4 - ZlibHigh

Thanks

If integrating VAL with Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 3, the compression level can be set in the agent job created in the VBR console as well.
