             Summary: Add info to the docs how Caching works in CouchDB (HTTP)
                 Key: COUCHDB-1942
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Documentation
          Components: Documentation
            Reporter: Andy Wenk

[15:14:21] <yawnt>	 hi
[15:14:36] <yawnt>	 is it possible to cache couchdb using, for instance, varnish and
[15:14:44] <yawnt>	 all i can find on google is stuff that dates back 3 years :\
[15:15:33] <+rnewson>	 yawnt: yes, we send ETag, etc.
[15:15:47] <yawnt>	 because i read that varnish only supported etags in the frontend
[15:15:52] <+rnewson>	 not much value in a cache for some operations, though.
[15:15:54] <yawnt>	 and doesn't check in the backend
[15:16:15] <yawnt>	 rnewson: in particular i'm talking about caching attachments
[15:16:28] <+rnewson>	 competent http caching proxies will work in front of couchdb,
I don't know varnish.
[15:16:41] <+rnewson>	 caching attachments could be useful, sure.
[15:16:44] <+rnewson>	 and view output
[15:17:03] <yawnt>	 i guess i'll drop by in #varnish then
[15:17:05] <+rnewson>	 anywhere where the staleness check is cheaper than the evaluation,
[15:17:05] <yawnt>	 thanks for your help :)
[15:17:11] <yawnt>	 obviously!
[15:17:29] <+rnewson>	 I wish it were obvious to more people, :)
[15:17:51] <yawnt>	 haha yeah i suppose so
[15:18:51] <yawnt>	 cache isn't dark magic :D
[15:20:12] <+awenkhh>	 rnewson: maybe we could add some info about that in the docu
although it's already an existing concept hwen using http?
[15:21:34] <+rnewson>	 awenkhh: I guess we could expand on it, but, yeah, it's a standard
2616 thing.
[15:22:16] <+awenkhh>	 rnewson: got an idea where a good place would be in the docs?
[15:22:34] <+rnewson>	 none, sorry. I'm an avoider of documentation.
[15:22:35] <+Kxepal>	 awenkhh:
[15:23:07] <+Kxepal>	 thought it contains information how to use couchdb as proxy, I
think it's good place about how to use proxies with couchdb too
