nginx serving static files - caching?

November 12, 2010 04:14AM
Hi,

we want to establish some service that will deliver static files (images) with a size between 1-120 KB. The service should handle (at the moment) ~130.000.000 requests per month, so not that few and not extremly many requests. The to-be-served files have a size of several hundred GBs in total. Some of the files (5-10%) are asked more frequently and the bigger part less frequently.

Let's say we have 16 GB Ram available for the server. We could simply avoid using some caching mechanism and read the files from disk. For my scenario: is it possible to establish some reasonable caching? No decision regarding the to-be-used technology is made so far. An associate favours varnish (with some webserver as backend) and some least recently used strategy, i'd give nginx+memcached a try. Any recommendations?
