[Plugin: W3 Total Cache] Optimal DB Cache Settings for Performance (4 posts)

    I'm currently not using Database caching on my setup.

    Page caching is set to Disk Enhanced and Minify is set to Disk.

    I tried using Memcached for a while and noticed that it significantly slowed down my site's loading speed (Upon first loading), so I disabled that. CPU usage / memory is not a problem as I'm on a high end dedicated. Am I better off leaving database caching disabled or using Disk / APC? (APC Had some issues on my server). Would Disk based caching increase performance? I'm not worried about the bandwidth / cpu usage savings, I'm interested in pure performance.

    Keep using these settings. Memcached is for multiple server configurations.

    Thanks! Database cache is currently disabled though, Is no db caching better than disk based db cache? Not worried about CPU / Memory. Performance is key.

    You should mention that Disk enhanced / Disk is 'optimal' in your FAQ. it's great that you give us the option to pick, but sometimes choice can be confusing =].

    There are too many hosting scenarios to give you a rule of thumb. The functionality exists for your benefit, so try it out and keep an eye on things while you do.
