We currently have Moodle 2.4 in dev and test environments and will be setting up a production environment over the next couple of months. (We have been running 2.2 for the past couple of years.) We just realized that with the new caching framework (MUC), we should not have $CFG->cachedir on a NFS mount. Instead, we would like to put it on local disk on each of the eight production servers we are running.
Putting cachedir on local disk on each server seems straightforward except for one thing: How would we handle cache purging in that case? I dug around in the code a bit and did not see how a cache purge would result in each server in the cluster purging its own cache. Does anybody have any advice or suggestions on this? Should we be looking at a different solution? Thanks!
