Re: [cbi-dev] caching on download.eclipse.org

Hi Jonah.

Caching on download.eclipse.org (and archive.eclipse.org) was done under the (apparently incorrect) assumption that content is added but not frequently changed.

I believe files are cached for no more than 10 minutes.

In your CI build, you can use the http header X-Cache-Bypass: true to bypass the front-line cache. The header should also trigger a refresh.

wget -S --header="X-Cache-Bypass: true" https://download.eclipse.org/tools/cdt/releases/9.8/compositeArtifacts.xml

Hi folks,

Is there any documentation on how download.eclipse.org caches compositeArtifacts.xml andÂcompositeContent.xml?

I am having a problem that even though I update both of those files at the same time from my CI job, the servers seem to serve different age versions of those two files[1]. This means that depending on which one updates first means that Eclipse can find an update available, but not be able to install them because artefacts are not available.

From within the browser I can see that at the moment compositeContent.xml returns 200 OK when bypassing cache, andÂÂ304 Not Modified when doing a normal load. But as far as I can tell, the file being served is not the file on disk.
