LSLB and gzip compression?

I can enable gzip compression on the load balancer or on the http nodes. But I'm not sure what is best?

If I enable http compression on the nodes, I can have litespeed webserver cache gzip compressed files.
If I enable http compression on the load balancer, I cannot have a cache (not supported until lslb 2.0).

But what happens if I disabled compression on lslb and enable it on the nodes? Will lslb just pass the compressed pages? Or will lslb server uncompressed pages to the visitors?

lslb just passes the trafic, won't do uncompressed pages.
You can just enable compression for both ADC and LSWS.
