Administer > Dynamic caching > Prepare to use caching in WebSphere Commerce

Environment setup

To begin caching the environment must be prepared. The cache monitor, CacheMonitor.ear application , must be installed. WebSphere Application Server provides a Dynamic Cache Monitor application for displaying cache statistics, Edge Side and disk statistics, cache entries, dependency IDs, and cache policy information. In order to inspect the contents and behavior of the WebSphere Application Server dynamic cache, you should install the WebSphere Application Server Dynamic Cache Monitor.

Install the ESI cache monitor

If we will be caching outside of WebSphere Application Server, we will need to use Edge Side Include (ESI).

To see the Edge Cache statistics using the cache monitor, install the DynaCacheEsi.ear Web application. The Edge Cache statistics can be viewed by launching the cache monitor.
