A store of frequently retrieved objects and URLs located on the
cache drive of an ISA Server computer. Instead of retrieving an
object directly from an Internet Web server, the object is stored
and retrieved from the cache instead. Caches improve network
performance by reducing the number of objects retrieved from the
Internet based on their popularity.
A cache drive is a hard disk partition where cached content is
stored on an ISA Server computer that is configured for caching.
Each cache drive is identified by its drive letter (C:, D:, etc.),
and each cache drive has a limited amount of space, in megabytes,
that can be allocated for caching.
A programming structure that includes both data and
functionality. A COM object is defined and allocated as a single
unit. The only public access to a COM object is through the
programming structure's interfaces. At a minimum, a COM object must
support the IUnknown interface, which maintains the
object's existence while it is being used and provides access to
the object's other interfaces.
Gateway Interface (CGI)
A standard interface for HTTP server applications. It is used
by an application that runs on a server to generate dynamic content
based on parameters sent by the requesting Web browser.
An authentication method used to validate client-to-server and
server-to-server communication. Credentials include a user name and
a password that is used to validate requests from client computers
or from other computers in an array or chain.
