I would like to a create a service for ArcGIS Server that will build cache tiles as a user first visits them.  I thought that all I need to do is select "create tiles on demand" in the advanced caching settings. Unfortunately, the tiles are not building as expected.

Please let me know if I have these settings set correctly:

  • If I want to build the entire cache automatically when I publish the service then I should select "Build cache automatically when the service is published"
  • If I want to only build the cache manually then I should select "Build cache manually after the service is published" and make sure "Create tiles on demand" is not selected.
  • If I want to start with an empty cache and create map cache tiles on demand as they are visited by users then should I select "Build cache manually after the service is published" and make sure that "create tiles on demand" is selected.

Thank You!

I am running 10.9.  I am planning on rebuilding my server from scratch sometime in the near future.

This ArcGIS Online help archive for managing tile caches on demand should get you started in the right direction:

Andrea.

Thank you for your reply.  That page does a great job at explaining the underlying theory of how to manage a cache.  Unfortunately it does not explain how to adjust the individual settings to build caches on demand.  I tried playing around with the settings but have not had any luck yet.

Thanks
