Cache Toolkit API for Traffic Server

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback from Traffic Server users indicates there is a need for additional cache capabilities. The project team decided that rather than implement a mish mash of the various features we would take a "toolkit" approach. The Cache Toolkit API brings this flexibility to the Traffic Server cache enabling users to implement customized cache solutions for their deployments via plugin development and not through changes in the Traffic Server core.

The talk will outline the current cache architecture, API, and issues in current deployments. We will present the Cache Toolkit API, describe some examples of operational needs for expanded cache control, and present the use case and discuss how the new Cache Toolkit API can be used to implement a solution for that use case via a plugin.  Some of the use cases we may discuss are tiered storage, locality control, import / export, and visibility.+
