NGINX Advanced Caching

NGINX Advanced Caching


NGINX Advanced Caching is an 4-hour course that provides a deep dive into how caching works, shows how to manage your cache, and teaches techniques for tuning and scaling your cache.


NGINX Advanced Caching is for system admins and DevOps who need a deeper understanding of NGINX Caching.

The course covers caching basics with an intro to caching concepts. It also covers how caching works – exploring cache types, cache controls, cache loader, cache manager and the cache layout on disk. Once you've finished with these topics, you'll work to manage and tune the cache.  You'll also learn how and when NGINX will deliver stale content and override caching instructions from the origin server. NGINX Advanced Caching finishes with issues arising from cache under load. You'll also configure microcaching.
