implements an <a href="http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2616.txt">RFC 2616</a> compliant
+    <strong>HTTP content caching filter</strong>, with support for the caching
+    of content negotiated responses containing the Vary header.</p>
+
+    <p>RFC 2616 compliant caching provides a mechanism to verify whether
+    stale or expired content is still fresh, and can represent a significant
+    performance boost when the origin server supports <strong>conditional
+    requests</strong> by honouring the
+    <a href="http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec14.html#sec14.26">If-None-Match</a>
+    HTTP request header. Content is only regenerated from scratch when the content
+    has changed, and not when the cached entry expires.</p>
+
+    <p>As a filter, <code class="module"><a href="../mod/mod_cache.html">mod_cache</a></code>
can be placed in front of
+    content originating from any handler, including <strong>flat
+    files</strong> (served from a slow disk cached on a fast disk), the output
+    of a <strong>CGI script</strong> or <strong>dynamic content
+    generator</strong>, or content <strong>proxied from another
+    server</strong>.</p>
+
+    <p>In the default configuration, <code class="module"><a href="../mod/mod_cache.html">mod_cache</a></code>
inserts the
+    caching filter as far forward as possible within the filter stack,
+    utilising the <strong>quick handler</strong> to bypass all per request
+    processing when returning content to the client. In this mode of
+    operation, <code class="module"><a href="../mod/mod_cache.html">mod_cache</a></code>
may be thought of as a caching
+    proxy server bolted to the front of the webserver, while running within
+    the webserver itself.</p>
+
+    <p>When the quick handler is switched off using the
+    <code class="directive"><a href="#cachequickhandler">CacheQuickHandler</a></code>
directive,
+    it becomes possible to insert the <strong>CACHE</strong> filter at a
+    point in the filter stack chosen by the administrator. This provides the
+    opportunity to cache content before that content is personalised by the
+    <code class="module"><a href="../mod/mod_include.html">mod_include</a></code>
filter, or optionally compressed by the
+    <code class="module"><a href="../mod/mod_deflate.html">mod_deflate</a></code>
filter.</p>
+
+    <p>Under normal operation, <code class="module"><a href="../mod/mod_cache.html">mod_cache</a></code>
will respond to
+    and can be controlled by the
+    <a href="http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec14.html#sec14.9">Cache-Control</a>
+    and
+    <a href="http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec14.html#sec14.32">Pragma</a>
+    headers sent from a client in a request, or from a
+    server within a response. Under exceptional circumstances,
+    <code class="module"><a href="../mod/mod_cache.html">mod_cache</a></code>
can be configured to override these headers
+    and force site specific behaviour, however such behaviour will be limited
+    to this cache only, and will not affect the operation of other caches
+    that may exist between the client and server, and as a result is not
+    recommended unless strictly necessary.</p>
+
+    <p>RFC 2616 allows for the cache to return stale data while the existing
+    stale entry is refreshed from the origin server, and this is supported
+    by <code class="module"><a href="../mod/mod_cache.html">mod_cache</a></code>
when the
+    <code class="directive"><a href="#cachelock">CacheLock</a></code>
directive is suitably
+    configured. Such responses will contain a
+    <a href="http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec14.html#sec14.46">Warning</a>
+    HTTP header with a 110 response code. RFC 2616 also allows a cache to return
+    stale data when the attempt made to refresh the stale data returns an
+    error 500 or above, and this behaviour is supported by default by
+    <code class="module"><a href="../mod/mod_cache.html">mod_cache</a></code>.
Such responses will contain a
+    <a href="http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec14.html#sec14.46">Warning</a>
+    HTTP header with a 111 response code.</p>

 <h3>Summary</h3>
 
     <p><code class="module"><a href="../mod/mod_disk_cache.html">mod_disk_cache</a></code>
implements a disk based storage
-    manager. It is primarily of use in conjunction with
-    <code class="module"><a href="../mod/mod_cache.html">mod_cache</a></code>.</p>
+    manager for <code class="module"><a href="../mod/mod_cache.html">mod_cache</a></code>.</p>
 
-    <p>Content is stored in and retrieved from the cache using URI based
-    keys. Content with access protection is not cached.</p>
-
-    <p><code class="program"><a href="../programs/htcacheclean.html">htcacheclean</a></code>
can be used to maintain the cache
-       size at a maximum level.</p>
+    <p>The headers and bodies of cached responses are stored separately on
+    disk, in a directory structure derived from the md5 hash of the cached
+    URL.</p>
+
+    <p>Multiple content negotiated responses can be stored concurrently,
+    however the caching of partial content is not yet supported by this
+    module.</p>
+
+    <p>Atomic cache updates to both header and body files are achieved
+    without the need for locking by storing the device and inode numbers of
+    the body file within the header file. This has the side effect that
+    cache entries manually moved into the cache will be ignored.</p>
+
+    <p>The <code class="program"><a href="../programs/htcacheclean.html">htcacheclean</a></code>
tool is provided to list cached
+    URLs, remove cached URLs, or to maintain the size of the disk cache
+    within size and/or inode limits. The tool can be run on demand, or
+    can be daemonized to offer continuous monitoring of directory sizes.</p>
