關於 KeyCDN 的 HLS streaming 最佳化...

KeyCDN 發表了對 HLS streaming 的最佳化:「New feature: Optimized HLS streaming」。

其中這段看起來就很奇怪:

The index file (.m3u8) will not be cached at all. The .ts files will only be cached for 5 minutes. If the origin server sends other Cache Control headers, it will be ignored by the CDN.

也就是這個畫面:

如果你把對 .m3u8 的壓力全部打到後端,那麼就註定不 scale 啊?之前在 EC2 c3.8xlarge 上面用 Wowza 測試,就發現單台最多只能承受 4000 reqs/sec。

比較好的作法應該是 cache 很短的時間 (也許三到五秒),讓 CDN 幫你擋下來,而不是前面打多少 reqs/sec 後面就吃多少...
