SharePoint 2010: Enable (Page) Output Cache Settings using PowerShell

To optimize performance in SharePoint 2010, there are a few settings you can do to help with page load times and optimizing SharePoint Cache.

The three main ways to do this is:

1. BLOB Cache
2. Object Cache
3. Page Output Cache

In my environment we are not leveraging BLOB cache, and Object Cache is already enabled by default. Though you can optimize it for your SP environment.

However the Page Output Cache is not enabled by default.

Below is a PowerShell script I created that enables the Page Output Cache at the Site Collection Level for a Web Application.

$webapp = Get-SPWebApplication [URL OF WEB APPLICATION]

foreach ($web in $webapp.Sites)
$cacheSettings = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Publishing.SiteCacheSettingsWriter($web.url)
$cacheSettings.EnableCache = $true
Write-Host “Updated Page Output Cache Settings…” $web.Url


#Default Page Output Cache Profile. The Cache Profile Id is built off the Cache Profile List (Site Actions – Site Settings – Site Collection Cache Profiles (under Site Collection Administration))

SetAnonymousPageCacheProfileId($web.Url, 1)
SetAuthenticatedPageCacheProfileId($web.Url, 2);

#Page Output Cache Policy
$cacheSettings.AllowPublishingWebPageOverrides = $true;
$cacheSettings.AllowLayoutPageOverrides = $true;
$cacheSettings.EnableDebuggingOutput = $true;
