the prefetch function in proxy is a good solution when you really need to faster up your user download time, it can parse any allowed plean html file, get all resource tags out and do batch loading from OS. I am going to preload my site before we put it online, as it will get about 1 month to get the disk full and hit rate stable. it is a cool feature but it have the following issues:
1, the prefetch config file is not managed well. ie, it is not managed by cluster
2, the it does not any document in the admin guide or old pdf file.
3, prefetching just care plean html file, without compressing, should we do some decompressing? is that possible?
hopes this is the starting of make prefetch really useful for some cutting edge situation.
