      Description

      For workspaces that are very large and don't compress well, the overhead of tar+gzip might be frustrating. It would be nice to have the option to only tar the workspace.

          Did you compare the numbers in a realistic scenario to make sure this would actually help? In my experience, gzip adds very little (time) overhead.

          JENKINS-26008 indicates a significant speedup when archiving artifacts and not using gzip.

          Yes, I'm running this change locally and it is a significant improvement. Our workspace is 1.6GB as an uncompressed tarball and 1.1GB compressed. This change saves 90 seconds for each job in our build pipeline, which is about a 20% speedup overall.

          Yes please, since "zip" screws up permissions.
