Subject Re: [users@httpd] mod_mem_cache question...
Date Sat, 02 Sep 2006 16:47:54 GMT
 I found the problems with mod_mem_cache under load. I am going to look into mod_disk_cache
as per your suggestion. I hope mod_disk_cache does better. Thanks for all the help, Joshua.

 This particular topic has been actively discussed on the dev list of 
 late. I believe that, indeed, you will get all the requests passed 
 back until the first request has finished caching. I don't remember 
 sure if there is a fix in the works for that or not.
