If you’re proxying through apache or nginx then the easiest way is to
get them to do gzipping. I don’t believe mongrel will do it for you
out of the box.

You might also have a look at a search engine called “Google”. Quite a
few people use it nowadays to find information quickly. For example, a
simple google search on “mongrel output compression” gave me this as
the first result, “mongrel compression” yields the same page as the
fourth result:
http://rubyforge.org/projects/mongrel-compres/
If you’re in doubt, that was a little bit of sarcasm and a pretty
please to at least have a little search before posting these kinds of
questions.

There was also a solution packed in a rails plugin a while ago. Don’t
know if it still works, and it’s certainly not as good a solution as
apache or nginx, but you could try the better output compression
plugin (http://agilewebdevelopment.com/plugins/
better_output_compression). The big question however is if it will
actually improve performance or slow it down.
