comment Can someone explain this GlusterFS setup?
I just setup a "replica 3" on GlusterFS 3.5.0 and read-subvolume was configured by default after creating a volume.

comment Which reverse-proxies support HTTP/1.1 ETag and If-None-Match headers?
The use case I had in mind for this question is to have the proxy revalidate with the origin server and the origin server return 304 if the ETag matches the ETag that would be cached for a given record. That is, the ETag would be randomly generated when the page is first rendered and saved with the primary key for that record. If the record is modified the ETag is erased.

comment RFC 2616 with Apache 2.4
You're right, I was mixing up requests/responses.. Still I found that Vary had no effect and the cache apparently only stores the latest version for a given url.

> I wonder what functionality of this specific version do you need in squeeze. CVE-2010-5107 for one.. Third-party PCI compliance scans are now complaining about this.

comment Using variables in Apache config files to reduce duplication?
In case this isn't clear, this exact same functionality is available by default in Apache 2.4.

comment Multiple data centers and HTTP traffic: DNS Round Robin is the ONLY way to assure instant fail-over?
Order of multiple DNS records that clients will receive is intentionally randomized so your reverse proxy is probably getting hit around 1/6th of the time (1/2 of 1/3). How is that any better or different than having 6 A records?

comment Our security auditor is an idiot. How do I give him the information he wants?
I love when people who don't know jack think that because they've been "doing" something a long time that it means they've been doing it well or correctly. Time can very rarely act as a substitute for intelligence as this (hopefully ex-) auditor proves.

Just found the "experimental-ims" branch of Varnish seems to add complete support for If-None-Match. Hopefully it will eventually be merged into a stable release. varnish-cache.org/trac/wiki/BackendConditionalRequests
