Next Level Cache improves performance by caching database queries.
This plugin is not for noob users. It's not as complicated as W3 Total Cache, in fact it's very simple to set it up. It requires you to duplicate a drop-in file (db.php) to the wp-content directory. You also need to inspect the Reset Query and put some constants in the wp-config.php file.
Skills requirement for using this plugin:
- Able to use File Manager (cPanel) or FTP
- Know where is wp-content directory
- Know how to add constants in wp-config.php
The speed improvement may vary depends on many factors. I'm happy with the result although the performance gain is very small on my case. That because my website is a simple site, not using heavy theme and have no custom post type, and it already using a great cache plugin.
If you're an advance user who want to boost your website to the next level, you should try Next Level Cache along your static HTML cache.
I see, this plugin not working (opposite W3 Total).
Im try to refresh pages, but only 0.1 jn cache used. And see this: before 97 queries, after this plugin 93.
Thanks, works fine, keep update this great plugin please.

Just works, did have to add a couple of plugin related db tables so that it did not reset as often. Also found that if you roll your own server instance that you need to have longer timeouts on mysql server as this plugin tries to reuse db connections as much as possible which is good :).
Just trust me and go to the setting page, the plugin seems to work fine although I have not yet seem performance improvements and my site makes a lot of database queries through using Custom Fields plugin.
