How to Set Pagespeed Options

A brief walkthrough on setting Pagespeed options in Web Controls

Web Controls enable you to use pre-defined and pre-tested security and performance rule sets. Rule sets minimize the need to discover, define, and maintain a large number of individual rules. Instead, you can create rule sets that match individual request or response conditions and execute a set of actions predefined in the Webscale Control Panel. Based on the conditions, Web Controls automatically execute a set of pre-defined actions after all conditions are met. Through Web Controls, you can create complex sequences of actions.

A typical action to define is to set Pagespeed Options.

Click + Add Action to open the Create Action dialog. Click the Select an action.. dropdown to open it and choose Set Pagespeed Options from the list.

Choose Yes if you want this action to run the Pagespeed options specified below, No to not run the options, or Make no decision for the Web Control to make no changes to existing behavior.

In the text area labeled Select the filters to enable when Pagespeed runs, choose from the list of Pagespeed options for this action to run. When finished, click the Done button to return to the Edit Web Control screen. You can add more than one action. Note that all actions specified are run, but there is no implied order.

When a condition is met, then all specified actions are applied to the request. You can only choose one final action. Final actions run last; the order of execution of other actions is unspecified and not necessarily in the order displayed.
