Drupal is a widely used content management system with more than one million users, designed to integrate with caching layers and content delivery networks (CDNs). For all other requests, the cookies are filtered down to just the session, and no-cache cookies preserve only the functionality that Drupal needs. If all the backends are unhealthy, cookies can be removed to allow the cache lookup to send anonymous (unlogged in) pages to clients so that they get a reasonable response. Error pages are set to cache for 10 minutes only. To make sure clients don’t just see a nasty Varnish error, any failures are sent via the error function and a customized error message is sent in its place. In this way, it allows Drupal to control the caching times for most objects as needed and ensures the best user experience.
