The NSS compression screen can be helpful in troubleshooting compression related issues.  It can also be used to see general compression statistics on a volume.


This enables a separate screen which shows compression statistics for the entire server. 

OES 2 SP1 - Linux
NSSMU -->  Volumes -->  F8 = More options --> F8 again -->  F6 = Compression Statistics.
This shows NSS compression statistics for volume selected.

Note: If you want to see compression stats for ALL of the volumes (for which compression is enabled) you can even do a 'cat' on /_admin/Manage_NSS/CompressionStats.xml. It will show you the stats at that point of time.
