Parameter tuning

The default settings of your Varnish instance suit most Varnish users, but we advise you to take a look and update the configuration according to your needs.

Our documentation site has a reference section with the available runtime options. This will help you properly configure your Varnish process.

To look at system parameters, run this command:

sudo systemctl cat varnish.service

To change the runtime options, input the following command on your Varnish instance:

sudo systemctl edit varnish.service

Edit and save the file. Now restart Varnish by running the following command:

sudo systemctl restart varnish.service
