I have a cached map service that I am using in a Silverlight based application. For this cached service, I have cached a core area and checked the option for On Demand Cache. I find that the areas within On Demand Cache are very slow. I am trying to understand how this process works. If I am zoomed in at the scale of 4000, it should be generating cache for a very small area, not sure why it takes much longer. I am using ArcGIS online tiling scheme. Does it generate the cache for all scale levels or just the one level.
I am looking for some feedback.
