How to configure dynamic caching in WebSphere

Home > Search > How-to

Typically, a web server or application server will only cache static content, such as images or CSS stylesheets. A WebSphere application server will cache both static and dynamic content, such as servlet and JSP pages and commands. 

  1. In the left panel of the WebSphere web console, expand Servers > Server types.
  2. Select WebSphere application servers.
  3. Select an application server.
  4. Expand Container Services and select Dynamic cache service.


There are a number of options that can be used to fine-tune how the application server handle's dynamic caching. The disk offloading option is not enabled by default. Enabling disk offloading allows a large amount of data to be cached, and will also preserve the cache if the application server is stopped or restarted.
