Nginx VS Nginx + Varnish
October 11, 2008 09:41PM
Hey,

Do you think it's a good idea to add Varnish to Nginx to serve static
files?


I'm running a dedicated server with 2GB RAM and a pentium dual core
E2180 for static files.

I'm only using Nginx 0.6.32 on Centos 5/linux 2.6.24: no database, no
php, no gzip mod...

Nginx sends 60 images/seconde (max 100 images/sec) among 3.200.000 jpeg
images (one image = 5-10kB).


Thanks in advance!



My Nginx file :
--------------------------------------------------
user nginx nginx;
worker_processes 4;


events
{
worker_connections 1024;
}


http
{
include mime.types;
default_type application/octet-stream;

access_log off;

sendfile on;
tcp_nopush on;
tcp_nodelay on;

client_body_timeout 5;
client_header_timeout 5;
keepalive_timeout 5 5;
send_timeout 5;


gzip off;

server
{
listen 80;

root /home/www;

expires 90d;

# CSS & Javascript files configuration
location ~* ^.+.(css|js)$
{
gzip_static on;
gzip_http_version 1.1;
gzip_proxied off;
gzip_min_length 0;
gzip_disable "MSIE [1-6]\.";
gzip_vary off;
}
}
}
