I have enabled disk quota to cache tiles that produced by WMS. Geoserver admin panel Tile Caching->Tile Layers list of cached layers. I can preview here on a demo page.


After preview I see that disk quate increased. This works fine.

I am using my layers on my OpenLayers application but used disk quata is not increasing. application is using url: http://localhost:8080/geoserver/wms/..... Used tiles are not inserting to disk. Why does not this?

(I have enable Tile Caching->Caching Defaults->Enable direct integration with GeoServer WMS)

  • What url is your app hitting?

    You need to either hit the gwc url or match yor tiles to the gwc grid (unlikely by chance)

  • I set my custom projection as EPSG:99100 in epsg.properties file. I could not found geowebcache.xml in my server. should I create geowebcache.xml? I see only gwc-gs.xml in /geoserver/data path
