Standard Cache Options

Enable Local Caching
Checking this box turns on the caching features of CProxy Server.

Minimum Cache Life
This option defines the minimum amount of time in hours and minutes that an item in cache is considered 'fresh' by CProxy Server. If a user requests a refresh of an article that is still fresh, the proxy server will send the cached copy to the client without checking with the origin server on the Internet for an updated copy. When an article has been in cache longer than the Minimum Cache Life value, it is considered to be stale and a refresh request from the client will force the proxy server to check with the origin web server for an updated copy of the article. The updated article will then be cached by the proxy server.

Expire After x Days
When an article has been in the cache folder (unmodified) for the amount of time defined by this option, it will expire. This means that when an Expired Items Cleanup cycle is executed, the item is will be removed from the cache folder and deleted.

Maximum Cache Size
Maximum Cache Size defines how much hard disk space will be used to cache articles downloaded from the Internet. The default value is 100Mb.

Cache Directory
The Cache directory is the folder where CProxy will store any cached articles.

Run Expire at Startup
If this option is enabled, CProxy Server will run an Expired Cache Cleanup when the application is started. CProxy will walk the cache directory structure and delete any cached articles that are over 30 days old (default value).

Enable Automatic Expired Cache Cleanup
Turning on this feature allows CProxy Server to perform cache walks and remove any expired items from the cache folder automatically at the time specified in the field immediately below. This enables you to schedule cache cleanups while the system is not being used so as to cause minimum disruption to proxy users.
