How to understand & configure Caching
To permit or block specific file extensions from being cached by the LoadMaster when caching is enabled within a virtual service, navigate to System Configuration > Miscellaneous Options > AFE Configuration > Cache Configuration in the LoadMaster WUI.
By default, the LoadMaster caches any files with a file extension that is not listed in bold under Cache Configuration as seen in Figure 1.1.
