Schedule Caching of Videos from a URL in a Prepopulation Entry

Jan 23, 2015

You can schedule the date and time at which you want to start downloading and caching videos from the URL to the appliance. For example, you might want to fetch videos just before you expect users to start accessing them. That not only saves disk space, but also puts the latest versions of the videos in the cache.

To schedule caching from a URL
  1. Navigate to Configuration > Optimization Rules > Video Caching page.
  2. On the Prepopulation tab, select the entry that you want to update.
  3. Click Modify.
  4. From Schedule, select the Later option.
  5. In the Start field, specify the date and time at which you want to videos from the URL to be downloaded. The format for the date and time is YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS.
  6. From the Repeat list, select the frequency of downloading and caching the videos. The available options are:
    • Only Once—Download videos from the URL only once, at the scheduled date and time.
    • Daily—Download videos from the URL every day, starting with the scheduled date and time. The download starts every day at the start time that you specify.
    • Weekly—Download videos from the URL once in a week, starting with the scheduled date and time. The download starts every week on the day and time that you specify.
    • Monthly—Download videos from the URL once in a month, starting with the scheduled date and time. The download starts every month on the day and time that you specify.
  7. In the End field, specify the date and time at which to stop downloading and caching the videos from the URL. This field is available only when you select an option other than Only Once from the Repeat list. Accept the default value of N/A if you do not want to specify an end date.
  8. Click OK.
