I have developed a web map application by using GeoServer 2.4.0 and tomcat 7 in Windows XP.

I have tried to configure the GeoWebCache for WMS layers to speed up the service but unfortunately it didn't work for me. I did something wrong in configuration steps.

Can you help me to achieve this?

I have attached some screenshots for reference.

I have tested with XXX.XXX.X.XX:8080/geoserver/gwc/demo Link:

My layer setting is:

And My Geoserver Log is:

  • I think you have issues with your style. Can you preview the layer in GeoServer? Why not try creating the layer again, start from the beginning, ensure that it is visible in GeoServer first, perhaps with a default style, then try GWC. Usually when you have those tiles that look like missing images, it means that the style is busted or you have a bad geometry in a vector (clearly not that here!)

As you can see in the browser there are no png tiles in the GeoWebCache.

You must go to Tile Caching > Tile Layers > Add a new cached layer to add your layer in GWC.

Then press seed/truncate and you'll see a dialog where you can choose the zoom levels and the tile format (jpg/png).

Don't forget to enable the Disk Quota, if you want to see the current disk space used by the cached layer tiles.
