nginx noob here… can I ask for a
I’m putting together a network metadata server to service
a large render farm. My basic specs:
the requests are simple: basically mapping a path-like
string to a string of metadata:
version_id("/foo/bar/baz") --> "17"
processing is fast: the cache will consist of
in-memory dictionaries, and the processing is
nothing more than looking up keys in the dictionary
and returning the associated values.
load is very high: this will be hit by lots of
machines doing image rendering.
I would like to code this in python if feasible.
I will have a couple of boxes behind a load balancer
Does this sound like a reasonable task for nginx?
What’s the typical latency I might expect to see
in a LAN environment, running on linux servers?
Any docs that are especially good to read?
