The Harvest Cache and Httpd-Accelerator
The Harvest hierarchical object cache, an element
of the Harvest Harvest
Information Discovery and Access System,
offers high performance proxy-http caching for Mosaic, Netscape, Lynx, and
other Web clients.
The Harvest httpd-accelerator improves performance of your NCSA 1.4 or Netscape
Netsite Web servers by a factor TEN.
That's right, if your httpd is swamped, try ours.
Both the cache and httpd-accelerator install easily, as described below.
The current version is cached-2.1pl0
The Harvest cache developers now offer cached-2.0
