Plugin allows you to cache HTTP responses, reducing load on upstream resources.
This plugin provides a reverse proxy cache implementation for Kong. It caches response entities based on configurable response code and content type, as well as request method. It can cache per-Consumer, per-Service, or per-Route. Cache entities are stored for a configurable period of time, after which subsequent requests to the same resource will re-fetch and re-store the resource. Cache entities can also be forcefully purged via the Admin API prior to their expiration time.
In this learning lab, you will control traffic through Kong by configuring the Proxy-Cache plugin specific to a Service and a Consumer. You will:
1. Verify that requests to a Service are cached in Kong
2. Verify that requests to a Service are cached in Kong for a specific consumer
