  11. 11. How Varnish works GET /blog Host deglos.com User-AgentMozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; rv:8.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/8.0.1 Accept text/html,application/xhtml+xml,applic ation/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8 Varnish Drupal Accept-Language en-us,en;q=0.5 Accept-Encoding gzip, deflate Accept-Charset ISO-8859-1,utf- 8;q=0.7,*;q=0.7 Connectionkeep-alive
  12. 12. Varnish is slower If Varnish passes every request to Drupal – and acts just as a MITM – your site will be slower. Varnish Drupal
  13. 13. Varnish needs to cache Varnish Drupal Cache
  14. 14. Varnish + cache is quicker 10x faster (or more) Varnish Drupal Cache
  15. 15. Personalisation is a problem Varnish Drupal Cache
  16. 16. The Uncacheable Varnish Drupal Cache
  17. 17. Example VCL: #This is a basic VCL configuration file for varnish. backend default { .host = "127.0.0.1"; .port = "80"; } sub vcl_fetch { unset obj.http.Cache-Control; unset obj.http.Expires; set obj.ttl = 86400s; }
  18. 18. vcl.list telnet localhost6082 Trying ::1... Connected to localhost. Escape character is '^]'. vcl.list 200 23 active 1 boot
  19. 19. help telnet localhost6082 Trying ::1... Connected to localhost. Escape character is '^]'. help 200 376 help [command] ping [timestamp] status start stop stats ...
  20. 20. url.purge telnet localhost6082 Trying ::1... Connected to localhost. Escape character is '^]'. url.purge .* 200 0
  21. 21. Setting up Varnish > Download varnish daemon debian: apt-get install varnish redhat:yum install varnish > Re-configure Apache to listen on port 8080 (or other non-standard port) > Configure Varnish to listen on port 80 > Configure Varnish VCL to connect to Apache > VCL tweaks (default does not cache Drupal)
