In this instance, the direction that DNS SRV adoption should be; * This design is inherently not cachable, and as you add more CDN nodes, it will become less cachable; * And as far as I know, you haven't approached any cache vendors (eg Squid) which may have the infrastructure to _handle_ this (which Squid-2.x does, and I think Squid-3.x should be growing soon if it hasn't already.) You've removed the possibility of _standards_ and _well accepted_ HTTP caching techniques without also deploying technology extensions in popular open source projects to cope. You're using a DNS feature which isn't well adopted/supported and you haven't provided a fallback legacy, well tested path. In short, you've taken the least supported paths, glued it into the least HTTP caching scalable paths and not created a suitable fallback. I hate to say it, but pushing the CDN logic into pkgng is a cute but stupid idea for this deployment. Please reconsider this choice before it becomes more widely deployed and you/others have "moved onto other things", leaving it to others to clean up. -adrian _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
