  • Cisco Employee,


Sorry, that seem to be an internal link.

You can also check the below post where a sample config is posted here for transparent cache.


               Best practice :

VIP would be a catch all address.

To optimize the caching predictor hash url is used.

You can also use mac-sticky on interface so proper flow persistence is used within ACE

The mode is transparent so we preserve the destination ip address.
