Pinned topic Reusing/caching https connections

Hello experts,

Which settings I need to check to make sure that Datapower is reusing / caching HTTPS connections?

Regards,

Rahul

    Rahul,

    Look in your SSL Proxy Profile settings.

    Rahul,

    Look in your SSL Proxy Profile settings.

    Thanks Joe,

    I know there is an option of 'SSL caching' in Proxy profile, which can serve this purpose if we use DataPower as a server.

    If DataPower is used as a client, then I think we can keep 'Persistent Connections' 'ON' , which will make sure that the same connection can be reused as long as the mentioned timeout.

    please correct me if I am wrong.

    Regards,

    Rahul

    When you select the SSL Direction as "Forward", leave "Client-side Session Caching" on. The help for that field plainly states:

    Enable/disable the caching of SSL sessions when acting as an SSL client.

    Then adjust the Client-side Session Cache Timeout, and the Client-side Session Cache Size as needed.  You might be running into a size problem.
