Why don't you try reading the manual? Most of the questions you're
asking here are clearly documented if you only take the trouble to
check. Sure, some stuff is not adequately documented and some docs may
even have errors, but asking if rsync does compression is so basic that
I have to wonder if you're making even a minimal effort to find things
out for yourself before blasting off another question and expecting
someone else to do the work for you.
