     323==== Configure !GeoWebCache ====
     324The raw WMS server will be slow, so once you've chosen your style, then you should serve via GWC. This caches pre-rendered tiles & also does MetaTiling so that the WMS has less separate requests (at a cost of increased RAM requirements)
     325
     326The version embedded within !GeoServer is great for providing a zeroconfig of the common options, however there are cases where you need to define a layer manually:
     327 * Want a Background Colour (bgcolor)
     328 * Want to specify an alternate style (& you'd rather not republish the layer on the WMS)
     329 * Want to render a set of layers into a single tileset (so that clients don't need to download them separately & merge locally)
     330Example geowebcache.xml for GADM attached.
     331{{{
     332cp geowebcache.xml /var/gis/geoserver_data/gwc
     333/etc/init.d/tomcat6 restart
     334}}}
    322335==== WFS ====
    323336If you are displaying a complex dataset at zoomed-out resolutions, then you will want to have simplified views.
