    Memory Cache Filter

    Memory cache filter implementation for Clyde API gateway.

    Implementation is based on node-cache module.

    The filter works as an in memory <key, value> cache. For each request it caches response content, headers and status code as the value and using the url as the key.

    If the property ignoreQuery=true the key will contain only the path part of the url and will ignore the query, for example, these URLs will be treated as the same: /some_path?param1=a&param2=b, /some_path?abc or /some_path.

    Installation

    npm install clydeio-memory-cache --save

    Configuration

    The memory cache filter accepts the next set of configuration options. Note, with the exception of ignoreQuery property all the rest properties are the same as the node-cache module, because of this, the set of properties are passed directly to the internal module reference:

    • ignoreQuery: (default: false) ignores the query part of the url when computing the cache key. Otherwise the full url is used.
    • stdTTL: (default: 0) the standard ttl as number in seconds for every generated cache element.
      0 = unlimited
    • checkperiod: (default: 600) The period in seconds, as a number, used for the automatic delete check interval.
      0 = no periodic check.
      Note: If you use checkperiod > 0 you script will not exit at the end, because a internal timeout will always be active.
    • useClones: (default: true) en/disable cloning of variables. If true you'll get a copy of the cached variable. If false you'll save and get just the reference.
      Note: true is recommended, because it'll behave like a sever-based caching. You should set false if you want to save complex varibale types like functions, promises, regexp, ...

    Examples

    Global cache with default configuration

    {
      "prefilters" : [
        {
          "id" : "memory-cache",
          "path" : "clydeio-memory-cache"
        }
      ],
      "providers": [
        ...
      ]
    }

    Provider's cache ignoring URL query part and with a TTL of 5 minutes

    {
      "providers": [
        {
          "id" : "providerA",
          "context" : "/provider",
          "target" : "http://server_providerA",
    
          "prefilters" : [
            {
              "id" : "memory-cache",
              "path" : "clydeio-memory-cache",
              "config" : {
                "ignoreQuery" : true,
                "stdTTL" : 300
              }
            }
          ]
        }
      ]
    }

    Notes

    • Memory cache filter must be configured as a prefilter. Its is required to capture the requests before sent to the provider.
