Varnish is a webcache & http accelerator. Varnish will either serve cached content, or retireve content from the server, and cache it. Varnish will reduce I/O pressure from webservers.



Install www-servers/varnish

root #www-servers/varnish


Configuration is controlled by /etc/varnish/default.vcl

   /etc/varnish/default.vcl - varnish configuration file
# backend default {
#     .host = "";
#     .port = "8080";
# }

Any traffic pointed at port 8080 will be through varnish.


To start varnish immediately:

root #rc-service varnishd start

To start varnish at boot:

root #rc-update add varnishd default


To verify that your traffic is going through varnish.
