Operating asymmetrically, the BIG-IP® WebAccelerator™ module caches objects from origin web servers and delivers them directly to clients. The WebAccelerator module handles both static content and dynamic content, by processing HTTPS responses, including objects referenced in the response, and then sending the included objects as a single object to the browser. This form of caching reduces server TCP and application processing, improves web page loading time, and reduces the need to regularly expand the number of web servers required to service an application.
Perform these tasks to accelerate HTTPS traffic with an asymmetric BIG-IP® WebAccelerator™ module.
When configuring policies in a WebAccelerator™ application, you can do one or more of the following tasks.
