it seems our captured logz are no longer getting compressed with .gz:

Given the size of files involved, it does not make for good experience

Can we get compression back? Also, would it make sense to compress them
with 'xz -T 0 -0'?

That should prove faster in builds and lower on Nexus storage footprint
(i.e. page cache pressure).


Robert, I'll look into it and get back.

I agree some of the .xml files output into the logs are pretty large (1GiB) in other projects like
and we should be compressing these files too. I've looked up lftools code [2.], and it's compressing only *.{txt,log} and
not '*.{xml,html}' files.
This change [1.] should fix the issue which adds file types and also uses lzma instead of gzip.
