Webservices auth proxy cache with millions of connectgions
We have been asked by our client if its feasible to use a LTM as a auth cache for their one app. The requirement is to cache all auth requests and take the load of the back end server. Each auth request is about 30k in size and the record that need to be cached is 100k. They get between 5-6 million transactions per day of which they recon 1 million is unique and need to live in cache for 12 hours.
The idea was to create an irule to get the requests and reply with the cached auth entries if stored in the table.
Can tables be that large and what size box would in theory be required to story a million entries of 130k in a table?
Thanks in advance.
