Today, it is clear that the caching of static ArcGIS Server maps for use in Web applications provides the fastest and most optimal throughput for delivering maps over the Web and to the enterprise. However, there are ways to take this optimization and throughput a step further by adding load balancing and tuning the Web tier for better cache handling. This document describes some simple steps for utilizing Apache HTTP Server and the ArcGIS Server REST handler to increase the performance and throughput of cached content for Web applications. It also discusses the results of some test scenarios that involved these tuning steps.
