I just came across varnish. We serve a lot of MP3 files on a regular

out of cache? Does anyone have any experience with Varnish and Nginx
installs? Are they complimentary or exclusionary?
They are complimentary. That being said, I don't think it makes much
sense to cache static files with an application. Your OS kernel
already caches disk accesses and running another application will cut
into that cache memory. Varnish makes more sense for dynamic content.
