I'm trying to reduce transfer time when accessing rows of a mysql table over a network, where each row has a lot of data. Is there a way to enable client-server compression when accessing a mysql database via ``DatabaseLink```?
As a workaround, I could request a column with
COMPRESS(column_with_lots_of_data) in my
SQLExecute query, but it is not clear how to uncompress the result on the Mathematica side.
