[Gluster-users] Disable rsync compression for georeplication

Using Gluster 3.4.2, we have a situation where georeplication is causing 
the CPU on the master to be hammered, while the bandwidth is having a 
holiday. I'd therefore like to disable the rsync compression for

Finding no way to negate the --compress option used in georeplication I 
thought that perhaps I could get part way there by simply winding down 
the compression level using "gluster volume geo-replication <MASTER> 
<SLAVE> config rsync-options '--compress-level=0' " (Yes, I did use real 
entries for <MASTER> and <SLAVE>.)

The return from that command was "unrecognized option 
--compress-level=0". I tried a few other numbers and got the same 
negative results.

Can someone please advise how to disable rsync compression for 
georeplication? Thanks.
