I have done much testing with memory based object caching using memcached and I think it would be nice if there was the ability to choose what type of caching you wanted (memory/file/db) and have the cache.inc functionality basically an abstraction layer that the storage mechanism can be taken care of by other include files (
e.g. cache-memcache.inc cache-file.inc. The same way that the database abstraction works.<br><br>I would be willing to begin some work on this if anyone is interested. We are building a Drupal site now that will need to scale to >30m page views per month and I would like to work within an accepted method to help grow and scale Drupal.
<br><br>If anyone has any prior work or projects that can be looked at to help get this going down the correct path, please point me in the right direction.<br><br>Thanks,<br><br>Steve Rude<br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">

Hi,<br><br>I might be mistaken but I thought file caching was something much sought<br>after. I found posts relating to it as early as 2002.<br><br>And yet, when the possibility has arisen for it to happen cleanly<br>(pluggable
cache.inc), the code for it has been dumped into CVS on August<br>26, 2006 and not a single cvs commit since then.<br><br>It's not used much according to the issues but that probably has something<br>to do with not having a single release.
<br><br>Is the community truly interested? If yes, then please a maintainer step<br>up.<br><br>And yes, I have contacted the current maintainers three months ago to no<br>avail.<br><br>Regards,<br><br>NK<br></blockquote></div>
