Subject Re: [users@httpd] Clustered Reverse proxy

Thanks for the response.

That's not really going to be an issue in my case, since this cache is
sitting at the back end of the application stack, and actually consists of
small components that are later assembled into a complete page. The outside
world never gets to access the cache directly. I could write an application
to do all this of course, but it seems like most of the functionality is
already there in a reverse proxy.
