Subject Re: cloudstack UI through accelerator/cache/proxy
Date Thu, 10 Dec 2015 11:25:51 GMT
The only thing you could cache as far as I can see is static content (js,
css, pictures) and list calls.

Anything that triggers an action has to reach the mgmt server and cannot be
cached.
When caching list calls you have to either have a really short lifespan, or
a proper method of invalidating the content on changes.

As for caching static content I am not sure if it really is worth it, it is
only loaded on the first page load, and with recent ACS versions it should
be cached by your browser as well.
I guess that theoretically you could build a custom version of the
client-web that reference static content from another server (
static.customer.com) and ensure through DNS that users use a mirror close
by.
