Problem related to Caching in mongrel


#1

My production server has 6 mongrels running. I hosted a CMS (content
management system) on the server. As a admin of the website, I delete
few tabs in the site. But the Public version(for the non-loggedin)
version of the site still shows the deleted tabs at random(some times
they show up and sometimes don’t). I suppose that the cache at some of
the mongrels is not updated properly and that is why I can see the
deleted tabs. Is my supposition correct. Or am I missing something? Can
someone help me out. I am blocked on this right now.

Thanks in Advance,

this is not a mongrel question. ask it on the mailing list of your cms.

Some questions:

  • What software is your CMS? Radiant? other?
  • What caching strategy is setup in your Rails/CMS application? The
    one by default?

Asking this because Rails MemoryStore, the default caching strategy
only works for a single process. Multiple process requires a shared
memory caching strategy, like memcache
