I'm not sure what is vague. I am setting an object for a TTL of 24 hours
yet during that 24 hour period it is still getting miss requests. The URLs
in question have no GET parameters. I am hashing only on the URL and not
So what does this tell me? It tells me that my cache size is big enough.
My guess is there is some type of contention from locking of some type
given other requests coming through. There are quite a few PUT and POST
requests that pass through this Varnish server.
Ummmm, I hardly think that "anyone can't help me." I think most definitely
"someone" that has some insight about the internals could shed some light
on this problem.
