Is there a way to get a web server to use memory caching, but in a way that plays well with Rails caching? Apache has memory caching (mod_mem_cache), as I understand.... but we cannot use it because Rails sweepers cannot expire cached pages? The reason I ask -- for all the talk about how fast Lighttpd is, it's not preferable to have a web server reading files off disk with every request? Or have I missed something? I guess the ideal setup would involve something like Memcached. Somehow, the webserver would keep the most popular static items in Memcached. Anything not found in Memcached can be found in /public on disk. ActionController would expire items in Memcached as well as on the disk. Something like this would give worthwhile performance boosts?

When you use fcgi/mongrel, you have a persistent rails process. Which in production mode, by default, caches all the modules. -Pratik On 12/22/06, Jason Bowerman <email@example.com> wrote: > > > > -- rm -rf / 2>/dev/null - http://null.in Dont judge those who try and fail, judge those who fail to try..
