thanks to everybody who tested and provided feedback on Phase #1 of the
hcache refactor, which was announced November 8th .
Now, I would like to proceed with the testing of Phase #2.
The code resides in the devel/hcache-runtime branch .
As a description, let me copy/paste part of the commit message:
Support compilation of multiple hcache backends and run-time selection.
This commits introduces the support for multiple backends and an option
to configure the one to use at run time (header_cache_backend).
Backends are not mutual exclusive anymore, and several can be compiled
in by specifying multiple --with-<backend> configure options.
For backwards compatibility, the header_cache_backend option can be left
empty, in which case the first (configure.ac order) compiled-in backend
is selected. In the case of distros building with a single backend
enabled - as they are forced to do today - the hcache functionality is
So, please go ahead, checkout the branch and compile with several
You can then set the "header_cache_backend" option to any of the names
above (whatever comes after --with-).
You can also switch between backends at runtime. Please remember to also
change the hcache storage path:
Change folder, let the cache populate, do this and that..
Again, go around folders and behold your cache being populated.
If you're also willing to provide some benchmarks, please see Issue #224
