Chapter 4. Compression and Caching
Compression and caching are two important features of an ADC, as they allow for optimization of a service without involving the backend servers and without having to do any configuration on the clients that are connecting. So, we are going to cover the following in this chapter:
- What is caching and compression?
- How do they work?
- How to configure compression and caching for web services?
Let us explore what caching and compression is and how they work as follows:
- Compression: This is the ability to reduce the number of bits within data. More specifically, it is the ability to use fewer bits than in the original data, as it is compressed.
- Caching: This allows for a NetScaler unit to store commonly accessed data in the ...
