Cache size for "HTTP full web page" sensor?



How to setup the maximum cache size for the temporary internet files downloaded by the HTTP FUll web page sensor?

I have been using this sensor with Internet Explorer and the Internet Temporary File is already at 16GB in size. I had to manually delete the files and change this registry entries, but I don't if it will work:

HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\5.0\Cache\Content\CacheLimit

HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Cache\Content\CacheLimit

How does the cache size limit work with PRTG 9 and Chromium as the web engine?

Many thanks Oliver

The Chromium engine creates it's own Scope temp. directory for caching. Inside PRTG all embedded chromium components normally work without caching except for Chrome application is installed.
