Caching a map service

I am trying to determine if it makes sense to publish map service with caching enabled. The data itself in the map service does not change very often, as it is based on a file geodatabase, which will be changed maybe once or twice a year. However, the rendering of the data in that map service changes, based on the user's selections in a JavaScript application.  The map service has a few layers, which are scale-dependent, and the renders data for Cities as points, as well as, data for Cities and Census Tracts as polygons.


I have published a test map service using caching, but I am not seeing any noticeable differences.  Are there any performance metrics at which I should be looking/on which I should be focused?
