  • take a look at varnish documentation.
    Varnish is not so easy to configure, the gui helps, but it still need some varnish knowledge.

    Please tell me the configuration of varnish. i am new on pfsense.
    i don't know that what values i shall have to write on varnish setting:
    Listening port (usually 80)
    Managment interface (usually localhost)
    Advanced startup (usually empty)
    Storage type (ram for better performance)
    Cache storage size in megabytes/ (depends on how much ram/disk you have)
    Minimum worker threads (could be 32 but depends on your hardware)
    Maximum worker threads (could be 1024 but depends on your hardware)
    Worker thread timeout (could be 300)
    Client identity method (ip address is more compatible with sessions)
    Don't cache posts (yes, don't)
    Session Cache (per user is a good choice ) take a look on field documentation link
    Cache static (when possible cache only in session, always remove cookies before cache)
    Fix gzip compression recommended
    Be RFC2616 compliant recommended
    Foward client IP userfull to log remote ip on web servers using x-forwarder-varnish var
    Fetch Grace How many time varnish will keep cached objects. HINT 60s, 30m, 1h
    Retries how many times retry url before sending error to users or checking for fail over
    Saintmode How many time varnish will send cached objects from a down backend to client. HINT 60s, 30m, 1h
    Custom Html error message how to send error messages to users
