Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1942) Add info to the docs how Caching works in CouchDB (HTTP)
Date Thu, 28 Nov 2013 14:36:36 GMT


Alexander Shorin commented on COUCHDB-1942:

Hm...To be clear "how caching works" is not about configuration, but about how HTTP should
work. So depending what topic you'd like to describe target article would be different. While
IRC discussion was about proxy server configurations (as I fell it) the issue topic better
fits to api/basics.rst where base HTTP things are described lightly.

> [15:14:21] <yawnt>	 hi
> [15:14:36] <yawnt>	 is it possible to cache couchdb using, for instance, varnish
and etags?
> [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
> [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
> [15:27:09] <+Kxepal>	 awenkhh: from wiki we could get nginx and apache guides,
but I could only advocate for nginx one since prefer to avoid apache completely (:
