I want to display the layer using WMS and meanwhile I want to limit the number of tiles with their respecive BBox when map is loaded. At the backend I am using geoserver.
I can limit the number of features to load for WFS using "Maximum number of features" option in WFS setting in geoserver. But I am somehow lost to find the way of limiting number of tiles in WMS. If I do like:
var bound = new OpenLayers.Bounds(6.9228, 50.9251, 6.9911, 50.9574);
and if i go and play around with different lat-lon bbox i can see in tomcat log file that, get request for tiles with respective BBOX are varying depending upon how deep i am looking for.
Is there any config setting in geoserver or openlayers api to control the tiles? Thanks
