Subject why does cache hit rate tail off?
Date Wed, 14 Jul 2010 13:27:07 GMT

I'm measuring trafficserver performance using the web polygraph tool:

Performance is generally impressive, but I'm trying to understand the strange results I'm
seeing for cache hit rate.  The test is a short duration (20 minutes) and initially the hit
rate measured by polygraph exactly matches the expected (offered) rate.  However 3 minutes
into the test the hit rate starts to drop below the expected rate and continues to tail off
for the duration of the test.  Can anyone explain why this might be?

I'm testing on a 1 Gbps network - does trafficserver somehow work out it's quicker to get
responses from the server than from its local cache??  Is this tuneable at all?
