Redirecting HTTP Requests to a Cache

Nov 11, 2013

The NetScaler cache redirection feature redirects HTTP requests to a cache. You can significantly reduce the impact of responding to HTTP requests and improve your Web site performance through proper implementation of the cache redirection feature.

A cache stores frequently requested HTTP content. When you configure cache redirection on a virtual server, the NetScaler appliance sends cacheable HTTP requests to the cache, and non-cacheable HTTP requests to the origin Web server.

To configure cache redirection on a virtual server by using the command line interface

At the command prompt, type:

set lb vserver <name> -cacheable <Value>

Example

pre codeblock set lb vserver Vserver-LB-1 -cacheable yes

To configure cache redirection on a virtual server by using the configuration utility

  1. Navigate to Traffic Management > Load Balancing > Virtual Servers, and open the virtual server.
  2. In Advanced Settings, click Traffic Settings, and select Cacheable.
