Re: bbpress and memcache?
There does appear to be an option that everyone is overlooking … and that’s Output Caching.
We’ve talked about memcache, optcode caching and mysql query caching … but truly the most effective is simply perform Output Caching for non-logged in users.
In case someone is not aware, Output Caching is saving to disk the generated HTML. That way, instead of memcache where you have to make a call to the memcache server, or in mysql you’re still making the database call or in optcode caching, it’s simply pre-compliling the PHP … Output Caching is by far the fastest because it essentially just serving up pre-generated HTML straight from disk.
