       hosting.config - Traffic Server domain hosting configuration file

       The  hosting.config  file  (by  default,  located in /usr/local/etc/trafficserver/) you to
       assign cache partitions to specific origin servers and/or domains so that you  can  manage
       cache  space  efficiently  and  restrict  disk  usage.  For  step-by-step  instructions on
       partitioning  the  cache  according  to  origin   servers   and/or   domains,   refer   to

       Before you can assign cache partitions to specific origin servers and/or domains, you must
       first partition your cache according to size and protocol in the volume.config file.

       After you modify hosting.config, navigate to the Traffic  Server  bin  directory  and  run
       traffic_line -x to apply your changes.

       When  you  apply  the changes to a node in a cluster, Traffic Server automatically applies
       the changes to all other nodes in the cluster.

          The volume.config configuration must be the same on all nodes in a cluster.


       Each line in the hosting.config file must have one of the following formats:

          hostname=HOST partition=NUMBERS
          domain=DOMAIN partition=NUMBERS

       where HOST is the fully-qualified hostname of the origin server whose content you want  to
       store  on a particular partition (for example,; DOMAIN is the domain whose
       content you want to store  on  a  particular  partition(for  example,;  and
       NUMBERS is a comma-separated list of the partitions on which you want to store the content
       that belongs to the origin server or domain listed. The partition numbers  must  be  valid
       numbers listed in the file:volume.config.

       Note:  To  allocate  more than one partition to an origin server or domain, you must enter
       the partitions in a comma-separated list on one line, as shown in the example  below.  The
       hosting.config  file cannot contain multiple entries for the same origin server or domain.


       When  configuring  the hosting.config file, you must assign a generic partition to use for
       content that does not belong to any of the  origin  servers  or  domains  listed.  If  all
       partitions for a particular origin server become corrupt, Traffic Server will also use the
       generic partition to store content for that origin server.

       The generic partition must have the following format:

          hostname=* partition=NUMBERS

       where NUMBERS is a comma-separated list of generic partitions.


       The following  example  configures  Traffic  Server  to  store  content  from  the  domain in partition 1 and content from in partition 2. Traffic Server
       stores content from all other origin servers in partitions 3 and 4.

          hostname=* partition=3,4
