Redirecting HTTP Requests to a Cache

When the NetScaler performs load balancing, The NetScaler provides a cache redirection option for redirecting HTTP requests to a cache. A cache stores frequently requested HTTP content. When you configure cache redirection on a virtual server, the NetScaler sends cacheable HTTP requests to the caches and non-cacheable HTTP requests to the origin Web servers.

To set cache redirection on a virtual server using the NetScaler Load Balancer command line

set lb vserver <vServerName> -cacheable <Value>
Example

set lb vserver Vserver-LB-1 -cacheable yes

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

  1. In the navigation pane, expand Load Balancing, and then click Virtual
    Servers.
  2. In the details pane, select the virtual server for which you want to configure
    cache redirection (for example, Vserver-LB-1), and click Open.
  3. In the Configure Virtual Server (Load Balancing) dialog box, click the
    Advanced tab.
  4. Select the Cache Redirection check box, and then click OK.
