VMOD_PURGE(3) VMOD_PURGE(3)

vmod_purge - Varnish Purge Module

import purge [from "path"] ;
INT hard()
INT soft(DURATION ttl, DURATION grace, DURATION keep)


vmod_purge contains functions that offer a finer-grained control than the purge transition in vcl_recv. The functions can only be called from vcl_hit or vcl_miss and they should in general be used in both to ensure that all variants of a same object are taken care of.

sub vcl_recv {
    if (req.method == "PURGE") {
        if (client.ip !~ purge_acl) {
            return (synth(405));
        }
        return (hash);
    }
}
sub my_purge { set req.http.purged = purge.hard(); if (req.http.purged == "0") { return (synth(404)); } else { return (synth(200)); } }
sub vcl_hit { if (req.method == "PURGE") { call my_purge; } }
sub vcl_miss { if (req.method == "PURGE") { call my_purge; } }
sub vcl_synth { if (req.method == "PURGE") { if (req.http.purged) { set resp.http.purged = req.http.purged; } return (deliver); } }


Description
This is equivalent to return(purge) but explicitly called from vcl_hit and vcl_miss. It returns the number of purged objects.
Example
set req.http.purged = purge.hard();

INT soft(DURATION ttl=0, DURATION grace=-1, DURATION keep=-1)


Description
Sets the TTL, grace and keep. By default, TTL is set to 0 with grace and keep periods left untouched. Setting a negative value for grace or keep periods leaves them untouched. Setting all three parameters to 0 is equivalent to a hard purge. It can only be called from vcl_hit or vcl_miss. It returns the number of soft-purged objects.
