This is a request for the following attributes to be added to cache entries, as part of their details/metadata:

  1. md5sum: MD5 sum of the data, that is hashlib.md5(str(entry.value)).hexdigest(). Useful to generate and ETag header at the service.

  2. last_modified: HTTP-date version of last_write but generated once and synchronized as part of the metadata, so it is exactly the same value across the instances. Useful to generate a Last-Modified header at the service. Format is RFC2616 but it could also be stored as a timestamp. There are different ways to generate it. The one I am using right now in the services is this one:

from wsgiref.handlers import format_date_time
self.response.headers['Last-Modified'] = format_date_time(cache_entry.last_write)
