FRiCKLE Labs & C2Hosting pres. ngx_slowfs_cache

Hello,
let me introduce another nginx module.

ngx_slowfs_cache is a module which allows caching of static files
(served using “root” directive). This enables one to create
fast caches for files stored on slow filesystems, for example:

  • storage: network disks, cache: local disks,
  • storage: 7,2K SATA drives, cache: 15K SAS drives in RAID0.

Module configuration directives:
slowfs_cache,
slowfs_cache_key,
slowfs_cache_purge,
slowfs_cache_path,
slowfs_temp_path,
slowfs_cache_min_uses,
slowfs_cache_valid,
slowfs_big_file_size.

Module configuration variables:
$slowfs_cache_status.

This module was fully funded by c2hosting.com.

Hi Piotr.

I’d like add your new module to FreeBSD ports tree for www/nginx and
www/nginx-devel ports. It looks like your module can’t be build with
latest
stable version 0.7.64, but builts successfully with development version
0.8.30.

Here is compile log with 0.7.64.

Anyway, thank you for your new module!

Compatibility with 0.7.x line is the thing I always forget about!

Thanks for the report! I’ll look into this in a moment.

Hello,

I was wondering if you had added fastcgi.conf from 0.8.30/conf/ folder
to the www/nginx-devel port yet. I installed it on two different
boxes recently and I had to create the file myself, which is trivial,
but we are recommending new configurations to use this file so it
would be great if it was there :D.

Thanks,
Merlin
