Quick Tip – How to Enable Local Cache in Velocity (Microsoft Distributed Cache) Client

Local cache is a Velocity feature that can help speed up access on Velocity clients.

as parameter whether the local cache is enabled.
- The configuration way – in the client config file, we we use the localCache
