As part of exploring how Boulder works, I have externalized the database, while the rest of the components are still running inside Docker (on AWS).
Instead of talking to
boulder-mysql, the Boulder components talk to an external database (MariaDB, on AWS RDS), … or at least that is what I intended.
Using “Sequel Pro”, I can easily connect to the database and see live changes to some tables:
The OCSP Responder also seems to be working properly, since it correctly reports
Revoked, … but the database table
ocspResponses contains 0 rows, and never seems to get updated.
ocspResponses should be getting updates in real time, that could be a configuration error on my part, so it would be helpful to know what I should expect for a properly configured Boulder.
So my question is about the Boulder architecture, …
Where is the OCSP Responder storing its responses, since they seem to be correctly updated in real time? Are they cached in memory and periodically flushed to the database?
Any insights into OCSP Responder details would be appreciated.
