The caching control panel¶
After installation, you will find a Caching control panel in Plone’s site setup. This consists of four main tabs:
Change settings, where you can control caching behaviour
Import settings, where you can import pre-defined profiles of cache settings
Purge caching proxy, where you can manually purge content from a caching proxy. This tab only appears if you have purging enabled under Change settings.
RAM cache, where you can view statistics about and purge the RAM cache.
Under the settings tab, you will find four fieldsets:
General settings, for global options such as turning caching on or off.
Caching proxies, where you can control Plone’s use of a caching proxy such as Squid or Varnish.
Caching operation mappings, where caching rulesets (hints about views and resources used for caching purposes) can be associated with caching operations (which either intercept a request to return a cached response, or modifies a response to add cache control headers). This is also where rulesets for legacy page templates (created through the web or the portal_skins tool) are configured.
Detailed settings, where you can configure parameters for individual caching operations.
