Installs and configures varnish.


v 0.8.0:

  • Current public release.


  • COOK-648 - add RHEL support
  • COOK-873 - better configuration control via attributes



Tested on:

  • Ubuntu 10.04
  • Debian 6.0


  • node['varnish']['dir'] - location of the varnish configuration directory
  • node['varnish']['default'] - location of the default file that controls the varnish init script on Debian/Ubuntu systems.



Installs the varnish package, manages the default varnish configuration file, and the init script defaults file.


On systems that need a high performance caching server, use recipe[varnish]. Additional configuration can be done by modifying the default.vcl.erb and ubuntu-default.erb templates. By default the ubuntu-default.erb is set up for minimal configuration with no VCL.
