Updating cached headers
This is especially true if you happen to use Nginx Plus, which comes with support and extra features. This is a typical use case of a web server, rather than a cache server.However, since Nginx can proxy requests to other web servers or to applications (via HTTP, Fast CGI and u WSGI), it's commonly used to increase performance for serving static files while proxying application requests to other processes.I'll also show how you can add a version tag to your file links, to ensure you don't inadvertently serve stale data.Note that this is not the only way to add cache headers to your site.With the use of this custom header, you can access the content which already exists, from the browser cache.If you add S3 Custom Headers Cache-control and Expiration Time, the S3 objects are loaded from cache without requesting from S3 for better performance and reduced cost. Cache control metadata key is “Cache-Control” and Value is “max-age= With this method, you can set Cache Control Header for Amazon S3 Object at the time of uploading the Object, using PUT Object Request in your program.Cache control will access the object from cache up to a specified time limit set by you. You will need to mention cache-control in the Request header to specify the caching behavior.Note: If object is HTML file, set Key: “Cache-Control” and value: max-age = (time for which you want your object to be accessed from cache in seconds), must-revalidate “i.e.
If you want Cloud Front to cache different versions of your objects based on the device a user is using to view your content, configure Cloud Front to forward the applicable headers to your custom origin: header to your origin.
The main benefit of a cache server is that we put less load on our application servers.
Requests for static or dynamic assets that are cached need not even reach the application (or static content) servers - our cache server can handle many requests all by itself!
For RTMP distributions, you cannot configure Cloud Front to cache based on header values.
By default, Cloud Front doesn't consider headers when caching your objects in edge locations.
The static files are typically fixed at the time of publish, and so are perfect candidates for caching.
