  • Sieve is simpler than LRU
    4 projects | | 3 Jan 2024
    Oh, thank you! I didn't realize that LRU Maintainer Thread was more than an expiration reaper. When it was first being introduced that was its first responsibility as lazy expiration removal by size eviction meant dead entries wasted capacity. It was all work in progress when I had read about it [1] and talked to dormando, so it got fuzzy. The compat code [2, 3] might have also thrown me off if I only looked at the setting and not the usage. Its a neat variant to all of these ideas.

    Caching - while it's not possible to cache everything, there's always a large percentage of your website / app that can be cached for an hour or ten minutes or 1 day etc... - all depends on the type of content but the longer you can cache for without negatively effecting content quality - the better. A good caching server example would be redis : or
  • Why do people curse JS so much, but also say it's better than Python

    If you really care about optimising this, you need, as other traders pointed out, a cache. Caches are a way of ensuring that the data you query stays in memory on a separate machine so you don't have the delay to disk & to commit. Things like memcached are created for this exact purpose. If you care about optimisation, look into it and other options. This is not a simple problem. Distributed systems like these are a whole area of work and research, so it won't be as simple as just swapping a DB, but if you care about performance, this is the path you have to go down eventually.

    Now that we know what to cache and the techniques Rails provides to store things in the cache, the next logical question is — where do we cache this data? Rails comes with several in-built cache store adapters. The most popular cache stores for production use cases are Redis and Memcached. There are a couple of other options as well — the file store and memory store. A full discussion of these stores can be found in the post Rails' built-in cache stores: an overview.
