Subject [users@httpd] Large File Cache Question
Date Mon, 06 Nov 2006 23:23:58 GMT
Hello, here's a question that has many subsections.

1. How suitable is Apache 2.2.x on Win32 for running with a huge file cache
(1-2 GB and more) of hundreds of thousands of small image files?

2. If mod_mem_cache is used under Windows, would the portion of memory used
by the cache always be in the physical memory, or is there a risk of it
getting swapped out?

3. Is there any dedicated Apache module for large file cache?

4. Just how much overhead maintaining and updating a file cache of that
size implies?

5. Is there any dedicated server software (Win32 or Linux/*BSD) that can
handle a large file cache consisting of hundreds of thousands of small
image files?

Thanks for the attention,



     Not far from here, by a white sun, behind a green star, lived the 
Steelypips, illustrious, industrious, and they hadn't a care: no spats 
in their vats, no rules, no schools, no gloom, no evil influence of the 
moon, no trouble from matter or antimatter -- for they had a 
machine, a dream of a machine, with springs and gears and perfect 
in every respect. And they lived with it, and on it, and under it, and 
inside it, for it was all they had -- first they saved up all their atoms, 
then they put them all together, and if one didn't fit, why they 
chipped at it a bit, and everything was just fine...
