Configuration Options

Configuration Options

oslo.cache uses oslo.config to define and manage configuration options to allow the deployer to control how an application uses this library.

cache

config_prefix
Type:string
Default:cache.oslo

Prefix for building the configuration dictionary for the cache region. This should not need to be changed unless there is another dogpile.cache region with the same configuration name.

expiration_time
Type:integer
Default:600

Default TTL, in seconds, for any cached item in the dogpile.cache region. This applies to any cached method that doesn’t have an explicit cache expiration time defined for it.

backend
Type:string
Default:dogpile.cache.null
Valid Values:oslo_cache.memcache_pool, oslo_cache.dict, oslo_cache.mongo, oslo_cache.etcd3gw, dogpile.cache.memcached, dogpile.cache.pylibmc, dogpile.cache.bmemcached, dogpile.cache.dbm, dogpile.cache.redis, dogpile.cache.memory, dogpile.cache.memory_pickle, dogpile.cache.null

Cache backend module. For eventlet-based or environments with hundreds of threaded servers, Memcache with pooling (oslo_cache.memcache_pool) is recommended. For environments with less than 100 threaded servers, Memcached (dogpile.cache.memcached) or Redis (dogpile.cache.redis) is recommended. Test environments with a single instance of the server can use the dogpile.cache.memory backend.

backend_argument
Type:multi-valued
Default:u''

Arguments supplied to the backend module. Specify this option once per argument to be passed to the dogpile.cache backend. Example format: “<argname>:<value>”.

proxies
Type:list
Default:u''

Proxy classes to import that will affect the way the dogpile.cache backend functions. See the dogpile.cache documentation on changing-backend-behavior.

enabled
Type:boolean
Default:false

Global toggle for caching.

debug_cache_backend
Type:boolean
Default:false

Extra debugging from the cache backend (cache keys, get/set/delete/etc calls). This is only really useful if you need to see the specific cache-backend get/set/delete calls with the keys/values. Typically this should be left set to false.

memcache_servers
Type:list
Default:localhost:11211

Memcache servers in the format of “host:port”. (dogpile.cache.memcache and oslo_cache.memcache_pool backends only).

memcache_dead_retry
Type:integer
Default:300

Number of seconds memcached server is considered dead before it is tried again. (dogpile.cache.memcache and oslo_cache.memcache_pool backends only).

memcache_socket_timeout
Type:integer
Default:3

Timeout in seconds for every call to a server. (dogpile.cache.memcache and oslo_cache.memcache_pool backends only).

memcache_pool_maxsize
Type:integer
Default:10

Max total number of open connections to every memcached server. (oslo_cache.memcache_pool backend only).

memcache_pool_unused_timeout
Type:integer
Default:60

Number of seconds a connection to memcached is held unused in the pool before it is closed. (oslo_cache.memcache_pool backend only).

memcache_pool_connection_get_timeout
Type:integer
Default:10

Number of seconds that an operation will wait to get a memcache client connection.
