Re: Caching strategies in Nova ...


Just from experience.

They do a great job. But the killer thing about caching is how u do the cache invalidation.

Just caching stuff is easy-peasy, making sure it is invalidated on all servers in all conditions, not so easy...

We're doing tests to find out where the bottlenecks are, caching is the
most obvious solution, but there may be others. Tools like memcache do a
really good job of sharing memory across servers so we don't have to
reinvent the wheel or hit the db at all.

In addition to looking into caching technologies/approaches we're gluing
together some tools for finding those bottlenecks. Our first step will
be finding them, then squashing them ... however.
