I have a Magento
18.104.22.168 installation running on LEMP Stack; Nginx + PHP-FPM (PHP v5.5.6 w/ APCu v4.0.2) + Percona.
I’ve configured my magento to use APCu caching like this:
<config> <global> ... <cache> <backend>apc</backend> <prefix>BDWEB_</prefix> </cache> </global> ... </config>
and the APC is configured like this:
extension=apcu.so apc.enabled = 1 apc.shm_segments = 1 apc.shm_size = 512M apc.ttl = 7200 apc.user_ttl = 7200 apc.num_files_hint = 10240 apc.mmap_file_mask = /tmp/apc.XXXXXXX apc.enable_cli = 1 apc.cache_by_default = 1 apc.max_file_size = 10M apc.stat = 1
and here’s the apc info page displaying the huge miss to hit ratio:
Any idea what might be wrong?
We had the same problem. After days of changing things it was a simple solution.
In the local.xml file you have used
for some reason Magento & APCu will only accept alphanumeric characters in the prefix so we found that dropping the underscore “_” solved our problems
APC settings seems to be fine. You can do next:
1) Clear var/cache in Magento web root folder.
2) Check, do you have enabled eAccelerator? If yes – disable it.
Btw, APC is not a good tool for Magento caching because Magento use built-in Zend-based cache.
