Following are various ASP.NET
caching interview questions asked by the interviewer.
You can use two types of output caching to cache information that is to be transmitted to and displayed in a Web browser:
Page output caching adds the response of page to cache object. Later when page is requested page is displayed from cache rather than creating the page object and displaying it. Page output caching is good if the site is fairly static.
If parts of the page are changing, you can wrap the static sections as user controls and cache the user controls using page fragment caching.
Caching different version of same page: -
Output cache functionality is achieved by using “OutputCache” attribute on ASP.NET page header. Below is the syntax
VaryByParam: - Caches different version depending on input parameters send through HTTP POST/GET.
VaryByHeader: - Caches different version depending on the contents of the page header.
VaryByCustom:- Lets you customize the way the cache handles page variations by declaring the attribute and overriding the GetVaryByCustomString handler.
VaryByControl:- Caches different versions of a user control based on the value of properties of ASP objects in the control.
