    OSCON was a blast! I can't compare it to other conventions since it's my first, but the organization was a very well-oiled machine and it really allowed everyone - exhibitors and visitors alike - to really focus on the heart of this event: Open Source. Being invited by GitHub (thanks Jono, Brian and the whole team), we were located in a pretty central booth at the Open Source Alley, where we had to handle a lot of traffic (but that's cool, we're Varnish, we know how to handle that).

    ...and a little #OSCON booths #3 w/ @github because awesome booth! pic.twitter.com/iVh2TYpw39

    Our London training course in April sold out very quickly and received a high participant rating. To respond to demand we're offering another Varnish Adminstrator Course in London in June.

    In part II of our interview with Varnish Cache Chief Architect Poul-Henning Kamp, he discusses what is on the drawing board for Varnish 5.0 as well as his thoughts on HTTP2. (Revisit part one of the interview.)

    The cache hit rate is the percentage of requests that result in cache hits. In Varnish it is evaluated as cache_hit / (cache_hit + cache_miss). The higher the hit rate the more effective your cache is. For example if the hit rate is above 80%, it means the majority of requests are fulfilled by an object already present in cache and no backend request is made. This, of course, makes the response time shorter and reduces or completely avoids the chance that your backend will be overwhelmed.

    Hitch is a libev-based high performance SSL/TLS proxy. It is developed by Varnish Software, and may be used for adding https to Varnish cache.

    hitch-1.2.0 was recently released. Among the new features in 1.2.0, might be mentioned more granular per-site configuration. Packages for Fedora and EPEL6/7 were requested for testing today. Please test and report feedback.

    In this post I will shed some light on Varnish Cache memory usage. In particular, we will examine the malloc storage backend and tune jemalloc for optimal usage.
