Support » Plugins » [Plugin: WP Super Cache] Version object cache support

  • I have WP 3.0.5, HyperDB, memcache and the wp-total-cache plugin installed without caching the database. I decided to install the latest version of wp-super-cache which has an experimental object cache support to check if it was going to work on my environment.

    Things seams to be caching well in memcache (hits and amount of data) but when I try to benchmark the performance of the page it shows me that there is something with it.

    This is what I get from Apache’s Benchmark:

    # ab -c 10 -n 100 URL

    Without any caching system: 29.00 Requests per second
    W3-total-cache without database caching: 603.76 Requests per second
    wp-super-cache without object cache (disk caching): 983.00 Requests per second
    wp-super-cache with object cache: 26.55 Requests per second

    and http_load tests…


    # http_load -parallel 10 -fetches 100 urls.txt
    100 fetches, 10 max parallel, 3.5979e+06 bytes, in 4.17401 seconds
    35979 mean bytes/connection
    23.9578 fetches/sec, 861976 bytes/sec
    msecs/connect: 0.41752 mean, 10.273 max, 0.125 min
    msecs/first-response: 403.312 mean, 795.193 max, 207.813 min
    HTTP response codes:
    code 200 — 100


    # http_load -parallel 10 -fetches 100 urls.txt
    100 fetches, 10 max parallel, 3.58607e+06 bytes, in 0.097215 seconds
    35860.7 mean bytes/connection
    1028.65 fetches/sec, 3.6888e+07 bytes/sec
    msecs/connect: 0.43917 mean, 2.34 max, 0.123 min

    HTTP response codes:

    I believe that there is something wrong in my configuration but I am not sure. I have the following check box marked in the plugin configuration:

    X Cache hits to this website for quick access. (Recommended)
    X Use PHP to serve cache files

    X Compress pages so they’re served more quickly to visitors. (Recommended)
    X Cache rebuild. Serve a supercache file to anonymous users while a new file is being generated. (Recommended)

    X Mobile device support.
    X Use object cache to store cached files. (Experimental)

    and I get this at the bottom of the page source:

    <!– Dynamic page generated in 0.163 seconds. –>
    <!– Cached page generated by WP-Super-Cache on 2011-04-18 17:03:37 –>
    <!– Compression = gzip –>

    Is there anything that has to be done in order to get the object cache support for wp-super-cache working?

  • I activated the Debug feature and set to 5 in the plugin configuration panel and now I see that I am getting lots of the following message:

    Meta array from object cache corrupt. Ignoring cache.

    The object cache support in Supercache is very basic unfortunately. You’re better off using the file cache as it’s more mature.
