Enable Edge Side Include (ESI) processing to cache the responses

Whether to enable Edge Side Include processing to cache the responses.

This field corresponds to the esiEnable element in the plugin-cfg.xml file.

By default, this field is checked. Select this field if you want Edge Side Include (ESI) processing used to cache responses. If ESI processing is disabled for the plug-in, the other ESI plug-in properties are ignored. Clear the check box to disable Edge Side Include processing.


Enable invalidation monitor to receive notifications

When checked, the ESI processor receives invalidations from the application server.

This field corresponds to the ESIInvalidationMonitor element in the plugin-cfg.xml file. It is ignored if Edge Side Include (ESI) processing is not enabled for the plug-in.

By default, this field is not selected. Clear the check box if we do not want the application server to send invalidations to the ESI processor.

This field corresponds to the esiMaxCacheSize element in the plugin-cfg.xml file.
