Let us consider a scenario where a specific web servers frequently receives requests from a particular user with same queries:
In this way, by utilizing the feature of caching, the load on the backend servers is reduced by the reverse proxy server, along with increasing the speed of the request-response cycle. The user can specify the amount of time for which the cached content will be valid. After that period, the cached content will be updated.
Let’s take the example of one of our customers who configured a reverse proxy server onto his machine using our product. The client had enabled the feature of caching onto the server.
Suppose a specific proxy link configured by our customer receives a numerous amount of requests from various IP addresses. In such a scenario, the reverse proxy server checks whether the user has given permissions for the requested web page to be cached. If the page has the required cache permissions, it is cached onto the reverse proxy server so that if there’s any other request that is made for the same web page, the reverse proxy server can respond to it directly without having to forward the request to the customer’s server(s) in the backend.
