Support » Plugin: WP Pipes » WPP cache consumes too many inodes

    Over time, my WPPipes cache files consume many hundreds of thousands of inodes!

    This causes me problems with my hosting. This is NOT a matter of disk space usage – ONLY +200,000 inodes!

    Example:
    13566 ./public_html/wp-content/uploads/cache/wppipes/urldata/2017-02
    13579 ./public_html/wp-content/uploads/cache/wppipes/urldata/2017-05
    13812 ./public_html/wp-content/uploads/cache/wppipes/urldata/2017-04
    15162 ./public_html/wp-content/uploads/cache/wppipes/urldata/2017-01
    15754 ./public_html/wp-content/uploads/cache/wppipes/urldata/2017-03

    How many months of cache need I keep? What happens if I only keep 3 months of cache? 2 months?

    How can I have WPP remove unneeded cached inodes?

    Please, advise. Thank you.

    Hi helices,

    You could keep cache data within 1 week only.

    WPPipes need cache data for running whole progresses. So you should not force WPPipes not using cache.

    Best Regards!

    Does WPPipes delete unneeded cache files?

    Hi,

    With current WPPipes, you could try to delete its Cache data with this button: https://www.screencast.com/t/vDFPzAoxHy

    Beside, you should use this way for each pipe’s settings: https://www.screencast.com/t/gCEXwZpvBsg

    Best Regards!

    So, by setting Cache: NO , WPPipes will have NO problems doing what it is doing now?

    I’m not looking to lose functionality, only to keep inode usage to a minimum.

    Please, advise. Thank you.

    Hi,

    Do not worry, your pipe still works with Cache: No

    Or you could create a test pipe on other demo site for checking how it works first.

    Best Regards!

    OK, I have ten pipes, all of this are now NO cache, and all appears to be working for a few days.

    What is the YES cache setting for?

    What benefit is there to using YES cache?

    Please, advise. Thank you.

    Hi,

    With Cache Yes, your pipe will store fetched content into the specific files at the first running time. And in next running times (within next 3600 seconds), your pipe will try to pick fetched content from those files instead of requesting and reading content from the sources. And with this way, your pipe could be faster because reading content from external sources is slower than reading content from files on your server.

    Best Regards!

    Do I understand this correctly?

    Each of my cronjobs runs every TWO hours (7200 seconds), in which case your 3600 seconds does NOT apply.

    Therefore, Cache YES will have ZERO effect for me over Cache NO – correct?

    Please, advise. Thank you.
