How can we improve the K1000?

AMP Connection Traffic is Uncompressed

I noticed our K1000 clients all send about 350KB worth of data when checking in to our Kbox. I checked out the traffic in wireshark and observed it's mostly XML data containing inventory information. XML data is highly compressible, and applying zip compression to this data prior to transport could reduce K1000 bandwidth usage by 90%.

    5.5 will have all payloads from the client compressed. 6.0 will complete the work with traffic being compressed from the server
