Folks, I am working on a small rails project which has a few actions but with intensive db and rendering. I looked at caching models and because of scalability and authentication needs I will have to use action cache or fragment cache. My problem/question is the following: I use a default layout for all my actions (which cannot be cached) and for source code clarity I put most of the activerecord db queries and objects processing in the controller. Doing fragment cache works great but then it stills execute the action code which is useless because there is no rendering anymore using it thanks to fragment cache. The solution would be to use action cache, but then my default layout is cached which is not what I want as it shows up personal information (and adding a new parameter in the route for the user is not an alternative). Something wrong in my understanding? Can you give me a hand on this? Is my controller/view organisation correct? Any good story about that? My main concern at that level is to speed up the average connection/s per server. Thank you very much in advance for your help, Cheers, Eric.
