we are using nginx as a reverse proxy in front of some webservers with
evrerithing works great beside when we start nginx new with an empty
in this situation allot of files in proxy_temp_path are create consuming
quite fast all our diskspace, in the same time proxy_cache_path is only
very slowly populated.
i see two parameters who might help:
a quick test with *use_stale was not succesfull, but maybe something
else was wrong
and for proxy_max_temp_file_size=0 i’m not shure if it is the right
what we would like to achieve is to uses as much of the diskspace for
caching. but on a restart with clean cache, not filling up the temp
folder which does not count to proxy_cache_path max_size.
or should we just reduce the workers (16) to provent from having to many
workers creating the same temp file for the same origin file?
