I am using Sharpmap v1.1 in my project.
I use OSM map offline as baselayer over geoserver.
Its working but so slow.
 var xDoc = ToXDocument(new Uri(geoServerAddress + "/wms?SERVICE=WMS&VERSION=1.1.1&REQUEST=getcapabilities&TRANSPARENT=TRUE&TILED=true&srs=EPSG:3857&layer=" + layerName));
                var source = new List<ITileSource>(WmscTileSource.CreateFromWmscCapabilties(xDoc));
                var tileSource = source.FirstOrDefault(x => x.Schema.Name == layerName);
                var tileLayer = new TileAsyncLayer(tileSource, layerName) { SRID = 3857 };

                tileLayer.MapNewTileAvaliable += map.MapNewTileAvaliableHandler;
                tileLayer.OnlyRedrawWhenComplete = true;
I cached the OSM data on geoserver. But it is still creating tile for every request. Its not working on cached data.

Can you help me, how to use cache data from geoserver on Sharpmap please.

You can try to use a local file cache
var tileLayer = new TileAsyncLayer(tileSource, layerName, new Color(), true, "fileCacheDir");
Please take a look at your cache directory to see if it creates the tiles because there was a bug inside of BruTile that prevented the cache with wrong tile names, see

Thanks for answer.

I use Sharpmap 1.1. which is last release on nuget.
What should I do, to get last comits for Sharpmap.
Should I compile sharpmap source manually or is there any release for new version on nuget ?

And is there any example for geoserver cached table on sharpmap.

Thank you

I think this is an issue for BruTile that WmscTileSource does not include it in the URLs.

For TileLayers, SharpMap does not do anything with the URL:s, its only BruTile functions. I will send it through to the BruTile team..

And my question is how can I send request as tiled=true.
if you've used geowebcache, try using ""

BruTile expects that the 'tiled=true' parameter is part of the OnlineResource in the capabilities. This is apparently not how GeoServer works. Reading the WMS-C spec again it seems to make sense to just always pass 'tiled=true' ( This needs a new release of BruTile.

A possible workaround (that I did not test) is to save the capabilities to a local file. Edit the OnlineResource to include 'tiled=true' after the questionmark. Use this local resource to parse to an XDocument.

Another alternative is to copy the source of the WmscTileSource and WmscRequest to your own project and modify it for your own needs.

But first try Diego's solution!

geoServerAddress + "/wms?....
With :
geoServerAddress + "/gwc/service/wms?...

First I changed source code of brutile and changed the request as tiled=true.
Caching was working but geoserver was still generating tile instead of reading from cache.

Then I tried geowebcache method as Diego said;
geoServerAddress + "/gwc/service/wms?...
Its working.

Thanks for help.
