    Hello team,

    we are currently increasing the webagent cache MaxResourceCacheSize,ResourceCacheTimeout,MaxSessionCacheSize and I would like to know What parameters are supposed to be monitored? The application team is running a cache test and wake test. here are the results. What else should we monitor from policy server end and webserver end?

    Hi Lavanya,


    I am not familiar with this "cache test and wake test". what is it ?


    If the intention is to identify the performance impact on the agent side with the tuning of those caching parameter then I would suggest running a load test with the agent tracing enabled . Then run policy server trace analysis tool and check the throughput/average response time etc. 


    Change the setting, restart web server, rerun the test and perform analysis again and compare what works best for you.
