Options Database screen

This screen allows you to configure the database options:

Compact (on exit)

Allows to compact the database when ZAP is closed, compacting the database ensures a minimal space disk usage but it will also take longer to exit ZAP.

Improves the performance of the database when disabled but might lead to data loss if ZAP is exited abruptly.
Note: current session will be unaffected, changes take effect on new and opened sessions.

Maximum Response Body Size

The largest response body size in bytes that ZAP will allow.
