Content Cache

 

eZ Publish uses Symfony HttpCache to manage content cache, with both expiration and validation model. Hence an ETag is computed for every content/version and sent in the Http response. It is also possible to use expiration model to get lightning fast responses.

An additional X-Location-Id header is added in the response for identification (see cache purge document).

Configuration

Code Block
ezpublish:
    system:
        my_siteaccess:
            content:
                view_cache: true      # Activates HttpCache for content
                ttl_cache: true       # Activates expiration based HttpCache for content (very fast)
                default_ttl: 60       # Number of seconds an Http response is valid in cache (if ttl_cache is true)

Making your controller content cache aware

Sometimes you need that your controller's cache expires in the same time than a specific content (i.e. ESI sub-requests with render twig helper, for a menu for instance). To be able to do that, you just need to add X-Location-Id header to the response object:

Code Block
languagephp
use Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Response;
 
// In a controller
// "Connects" the response to location #123 and sets a max age (TTL) of 1 hour.
$response = new Response();
$response->headers->set( 'X-Location-Id', 123 );
$response->setSharedMaxAge( 3600 );
