Argo CD: Enable Gzip Compression to Speed Up Web UI
Argo CD is a powerful GitOps continuous delivery tool for Kubernetes. However, Argo CD Web UI is very slow when managing a lot of Applications.
How can we faster the Web UI ?
Enable Gzip Compression
The easiest way to speed it up is to compress all its resources. Enabling Gzip compression on argocd-server is the simplest and most efficient ways to achieve that.
The argocd-server is a gRPC/REST server which exposes the API consumed by the Web UI. It can be configured by the
--enable-gzipoption to Enable GZIP compression
argocd-server [flags] --enable-gzip Enable GZIP compression
If your Argo CD is installed using the community maintained Argo CD Chart, using the following configuration to enable Gzip compression.
When possible, enable Gzip compression to speed up Argo CD Web UI.
The gzip compression will significantly reduce the amount of data loaded by the UI.
