Cache Optimization

Storage is expensive – optimizing your Content Manager OnDemand cache storage is the best way to keep performance at the maximum, and your costs at a minimum.

What is the OnDemand Cache? It’s a filesystem built from your highest reliability and highest speed disk – when new data is ingested by IBM CMOD’s arsload utility, documents are loaded to the cache filesystem by default – so that users can access them instantly. In most systems, millions or billions of documents have to fight for the limited amount of space in your CMOD cache.

But how do you optimize the cache? We configure each individual CMOD Application Group to hold data in the cache for only as long as users are accessing those documents. Using purpose-built OnDemand Cache Optimization tools, we can measure precisely which documents your users are accessing and use that data to determine how long they should be in the cache to meet your performance goals. Within weeks, the Content Manager OnDemand cache filesystems will contain more of the documents that end users are accessing, and fewer of the documents they aren’t retrieving. In some cases, customers were able to reduce the size of the cache filesystems by 70% — requiring a Cache Consolidation to save thousands of dollars on storage costs each month.
