Bug report #9289
WMS cache never used
|Category:||Web Services clients/WMS|
|Affected QGIS version:||2.0.1||Regression?:||No|
|Operating System:||openSUSE||Easy fix?:||No|
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||worksforme|
|Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:||No||Copied to github as #:||17900|
QGIS writes data to the .qgis2/cache/data7/ folder, but seems to never use it: panning the map a little back and forth with the hand tool always results in having to wait for the data to be downloaded from the server. This occurs with all WMS URLs I have used, e. g. "http://188.8.131.52/cached/osm?". I used a new project, the default settings when adding the WMS service and I even deleted my .qgis2 directory, so I don't have any special custom settings.
I am using openSUSE 13.1 and qgis-master 140102-1.1-x86_64 from the repository http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Application:/Geo/openSUSE_13.1/ .

Unless you bookmark your current canvas and use a fixed window size it's not very likely to hit the exact same window again - hence caching is not used for WMS. It's current only use is WMTS/WMS-C. You can however specify a tile size for WMS to get it cached - but that will also only produce cache hits, if you use the same scales.
