work this module also with memcached?
and will the use of both make the site faster or will it slow down the memcached module?
Do you mean whether it works with the Memcache module? I have no personal experience of that module but it looks like it patches Drupal's caching, meaning that you can only use Boost or Memcache, but not both at the same time.
(If you meant whether Memcached support could be added to Boost, then no, that won't happen.)
hm so if this is true, it means memcache will be good for membersites and boost only for guest sites...
thanks for the info
boost works just fine with memcache. they both patch a lot of stuff involving caching, but their respective changes do not conflict.
i'm using both successfully on a rather large site.
if both are installed it's that case that boost will only affect anonymous users, and memcache will only affect logged in users. this is because boost disables the use of cache_page altogether. without boost, memcache would cache pages.
Automatically closed -- issue fixed for two weeks with no activity.
this configuration of yours definitely deserves a write-up.
I am extremely curious how exactly you made the two work together and what came out of it.
i didn't do anything special. installed boost. installed memcache. they seem to work together nicely.
boost disables Drupal's use of cache_page, but otherwise does not interfere with the rest of core caching afaict.
memcache doesn't seem to have any issues with boost, and if you use any other contrib cache modules (like advcache, which is compatible with memcache after a little hacking) or write your own caching for anything, it works around boost just fine.
are you having any problems getting them to work together?
my configuration is:
our site has a high ratio of logged-in to anonymous users, and we've found that memcache+advcache provides an enormous performance increase, and takes lots of load off the database.
likewise, boost makes things fly for anonymous users. taking both mysql and php out of the anonymous caching equation is a huge win.
Thank you firebus!
I have not had any problems yet, but I am sure I can mess things up if I try hard enough :-D
advcache with memcache technique sounds really intriguing (I am about to build a site with heavy membership focus) - thank you for mentioning the serialization issue!
O^^thx very much , does drupal6 support too^
Just linking this up w/my own observations:
The short answer seems to be "yes, they're compatible." And in fact, they make a nice blend!
