Has anyone used a gzip compression card with Splunk?

I'm finding a lot over process on our server utilizing the gzip commands which results in our 24 core CPU server spiking to 100% (across all 24 cores). We are considering using installing a gzip compression / uncompression hardware card to offload ALL gzip command processes to this card.

Has anyone else used such a card, if so any benefits to it/cautions against it?

The device we are thinking of using is an AHA compression card, if it matters.

our tests found the cost of the card vs th cost of HW to be a deciding factor, we advise against it.
