Thanks Sudhir for the response. If too many clients starts doing range requests or even a single
client starts sending multiple range requests, using background fetch, may cause multiple
downloads to start, reason being downloads will not be sharable. Keeping rest of the client
connection  idle till, first download completes also not useful as it may cause FD exhaustion
for smaller footprint devices. I may be talking too much without knowing much about implementation

Thank you.

As of v6.0, ATS does not support Partial object caching (ala byte range caching).

However, ATS does support returning partial byte range responses if the whole object is already
cached. Background Fetch<>
plugin takes advantage of this fact, by initiating a full object download in the background
on receiving a byte range request for an object that's not in the cache yet. Once the full
object is downloaded and populated into the cache, subsequent byte range requests are directly
served from the cache.

Hello experts,

I have legacy forward proxy used in enterprise network facing to internet behind firewall.
Unfortunately it cannot do partial object caching. I am looking if I can get an alternate
proxy to do this.
My requirement is:
1.       Partial object caching so updates by apple etc. can be cached. Also video caching
will just work.
2.       Streaming to multiple client at same time should be possible from single server connection.

It seems varnish can do above stuff. But it works effectively as reverse proxy, so I have
to position it before my proxy, as it cannot work as upstream proxy directly. Also its cache
seems gets vanished after restart(Everything in cache is from heap).
Do you guys know if ATS can do this functionality? I believe it is not possible, but I thought
just ask if we achieve this by any means. A pointing to how to would be really appreciated.

Thank you from Newbie,
