Enabling Content Optimization

To enable Content Optimization Caching for ASP.NET web applications, follow these steps:
  • Go to the Central Administration page of SharePoint and click on Application Management tab.
  • Click on Distributed Caching under StorageEdge Management.
  • Click on Content Optimization under Distributed Caching tab.
  • On the Content Optimization page, select ViewState Caching and/or JavaScript and CSS minifying and/or Image Combining check boxes on the top of the page.
    In case of "JavaScript and CSS Minification" and "Image Combining", cache doesn't expire the items automatically. To clear the content of JS/CSS/Images from cache, StorageEdge provides you the Flush JS/CSS/Images button to clear the content from the cache. This option removes the content of JavaScript, CSS and Images from the cache to get the updated content.
  • Start your Cache.
  • Enter the Cache Name on Content Optimization page. Click on Test button next to the Cache Name to check whether the connection with the cache is successfully established or not
    If a cache connection error message appears, you should read this page for instructions on how to resolve this issue.
  • Select the Expiration Type from drop down menu. It can either be None or Sliding.
  • Set the timeout Duration (in minutes) for expiration. By default expiration is not enabled. For details Setting Expiration on ViewState
  • Enter the Minimum Threshold size for ViewState ((in bytes) in the text box on which caching should occur.
  • Select Web Applications at the bottom for which you wish to enable Content Optimization.
  • Click on the Apply button.
  • If you have enabled ViewState Caching above, you must configure the Page Adapter. To do so, select the "Automatically update compat.browser files" option as shown in the figure below.
    Note: If Content Optimization Caching does not start automatically, then:
