    This attribute creates a new instance of a page to be cached when a different parameter is passed to the page. The parameter can be passed by either a query string parameter or a form parameter.
    You can assign two special values to the VaryByParam attribute:
    none: Parameters will be ignored. Only one version of the page is cached.
    *: New cached version of the page will be created, if there is a change in any
    query string.
    Example:
    <%@ OutputCache Duration=”3000” VaryByParam=”id” %>
    Each time a different id as a parameter is passed to the .aspx page, another version of the same page is cached in memory.
