[slurm-users] Database Compression

My site has just updated to Slurm 21.08 and we are looking at moving to the built-in job script capture capability, so I'm curious about this as well.

Subject: [slurm-users] Database Compression

With the advent of the ability to store jobscripts in the slurmdb, our 
db is growing at a fairly impressive rate (which is expected).  That 
said I've noticed that our database backups are highly compressible 
(factor of 24).  Not being a mysql expert I hunted around to see if it 
could do native compression and it can: 

My question is if anyone has had any experience with using page 
compression for mariadb and if there are any hitches I should be aware of?
