Running An Institutional Web Service:

5 Caching

This exercise is intended for workshop participants who are particularly interested in caching. The exercise will form the basis of a discussion group.




Do you run an institutional cache?

In the past have you made use of the national cache at HENSA?

Have you experienced any problems in using a cache?

What is the specification for your cache server? What software does it run?

How do you configure your clients to use a cache?

Do you have any institutional policies / guidelines covering use of your institutional cache (e.g. use of cache log files, discovering copyrighted resources in your cache?)



Make a note of any comments on this exercise or any issues you may wish to raise at the discussion group.
