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

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.
