HTTP status codes cached by default

  Last updated January 17, 2019

Fastly caches the following response status codes by default. In addition to these statuses, you can force an object to cache under other states using conditions and responses.

Code Message
200 OK
203 Non-Authoritative Information
300 Multiple Choices
301 Moved Permanently
302 Moved Temporarily
404 Not Found
410 Gone

To cache status codes other than the ones listed above, set beresp.cacheable = true; in vcl_fetch. This tells Varnish to obey backend HTTP caching headers and any other custom ttl logic. A common pattern is to allow all 2XX responses to be cacheable:

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
sub vcl_fetch {
  # ...
  if (beresp.status >= 200 && beresp.status < 300) {
    set beresp.cacheable = true;
  }
  # ...
}
