Is flower using compression algorithm?

This question was migrated from the Slack channel #questions.

Original Question:
I’m doing my MSc thesis. Is Flower using a compression algorithm? I’m doing traffic benchmarking to choose the framework, and I get very low overhead.

No, not yet. No compression algo is used. Ig low overhead does not mean compression.

Question 2:
Is Flower using something to reduce traffic, like filtering some layer of the model?

No. Only the model parameters you return in or in fit instructions sent from Strategy
