I have caching set up on an ISA Server with mirrored drives and one separate drive for caching.We have a full T-1 going to the Internet, so bandwidth isn't a problem.The problem is the delivery of the page to Internet Explorer, it is much slower than we would anticiptate it to be.It seems to find the site quickly, but the actual loading of the page is very slow.I am using the firewall client on an XP workstation with 100/half-duplex connections.Are there any tweaks I can do with the caching?Are there any rules or filters that would make caching slow.Any help would be appreciated. If more information is needed,please let me know.Thank you.
Whether it is old hub technology or not isn't the problem, the switches are controlled by another division.People with 100 full-duplex connections and firewall client have the same problem.We are getting a mirrored port set up on the switch, I will put Ethereal on and check it out.
I have a similar problem. IE seems to find the page alright but it seems to take forever before the page is fully loaded. Is there any monitoring tool that lets you check loading times? or some monitoring that can be activated to see why pages are so slow.
I initially think it might be the hardware, we just received a new HP DL 320 ProLiant Server preloaded with ISA 2004 Server.I am going to be installing this weekend, I will let you know the results.I tried to find something about tweaking the cache on ISA 2004. I could not find anything worthwhile.But both your syptoms sound comparable to what I was experiencing.
I am waiting to here from you on how it went with new hardware. I moved my isa to new hardware and i still have the same problem.I backup and then restored my setting to new server maybe you should try build from scratch instead of migrating.
I have fix the problem.... I just haven't confirmed on what it is exactly because it is busy hours at the moment at work. It's either bad port on router or switch or bad cable, all that hard work for a stupid little problem Oh well glad it's over.. I suggest checking you ports and cabling guys. Good luck.
hey guys want better performance with caching, go to addins>web filters and disable diffserv and compression filters, works like a charm... and when you go to alerts no errors about compression or isa rejecting any non surported of some type compression...
