Cache Tuner Module helps you to understand your Sitecore Caching usage and helps you for fine tuning cache sizes as per Sitecore's Caching Guide Recommendation.

Caching is one of the least used and misunderstood, yet most powerful features of Sitecore. Most developers do not get into the details of harnessing the power of caching until they get to at least the intermediate proficiency level, and some never use it at all. I’ve observed that due to Cache Size Tuning’s complexity process people are not tuning Cache size even though they have plenty of RAM available! OR sometime they overconfigure it which leads to OOM errors.

This module is the implementation of the rules given in ​Sitecore Caching guide. So, If you would like to check whether cache sizes are being utilized or not? If utilized then how much amount of Cache Tuning is required. Then this tool is for you!

If you have any issues/ideas/suggestions with the Cache Tuner module, please report them to the Shared Source forum on SDN OR drop me a line at ​[email protected]

If your feedback is positive tell to your peers else tell to me at : ​[email protected] Feel free to post your suggestions/comments/bugs at provided email id.
