Problem Description

What are the limitations for creating a URL list, using the Jav- based Director Management Console (DMC)?

Why am I receiving a "Java heap space" message when I attempt to create a URL list?

Resolution

This feature pre-populates the object cache of one or more ProxySG devices with content from individual URLs or URL lists. For a variety of reasons, certain content is not object-cacheable. For example, Web pages that include the meta tag <META HTTPEQUIV=" Pragma" CONTENT="no-cache"> are not cacheable. Also, dynamically generated content might not be cacheable. Ensure the URLS you provide are for cachable content.

ProxySGs do not spider a Web site to pre-populate all its contents. To do that, you can use the Content Sync Module, which is discussed in the Blue Coat Director Content Sync Module Guide manual and in KB4737.

To create a URL list using the DMC:

 

  1. Log in to Director.
  2. In the DMS, click on the Content tab.
  3. On the right side, ensure URL lists is in the drop down.
  4. Right click the ALL folder.
  5. Select New > New Content List > URL List.
  6. When the Wizard pops up, give it a name.
  7. Specify a list, for example:

www.google.com
www.cnn.com
http://www.google.com/favicon.ico
http://www.google.com/images/nav_logo3.png
http://www.google.com/intl/en_all/images/logo.gif

Alternatively, you can select Import from local file and browse to a file containing a URL list that you specified.

Limitation

 

URL lists cannot exceed 50,000 URLs.  If you add more than 50,000 URLs to a list, the DMC crashes with a Java heap space message.

 

NOTE: For more information on subjects like verifiying, or deleting the lists, and folders, please see the Blue Coat Director CMG guide.
