Support » Plugin: W3 Total Cache » I/O issues when plugin is activated

  • W3 Total Cache was highly recommended to me, and it was doing its job, but the client wants it deleted because I/O was running at 100% and slowing down the site too much. They’re hosting at GoDaddy. I exported my settings before deactivating, in case that will be helpful in troubleshooting. Thanks!

  • Guessing you have disk based caching enabled?

    If so if you can switch to something in RAM like memcached or redis or AWS elasticache (as a third party caching service – though the speed of transit between GoDaddy to elasticache may defeat the object of using caching anyway) then the IO issues should go away.

    If you can’t install or use memcached or redis you might be able to create a ramdisk on the server and set w3 total cache to perform on disk caching there.

    Depends what tech you have access to there.
