Can I get an explanation of the following response from a previous reply?
"Actually we do disable level two (data) cache when running on load balancing and Sitefinity needs the load balancing nodes configured so it can message them to invalidate the cache so content changes can be reflected on all servers."
Is it recommended that L2 caching be turned off when running on load balancing? We have numerous issues caching problems. We are running our servers in Azure, so unsure on how this changes things?
This is a very good question. When we were running on version 8.2, we had it turned off. We upgraded to 9.1 last October and ever since have had cache issues that still have yet to be resolved by Sitefinity. We were told to remove the "false" setting on the L2 cache and all would be good. However, that contradicts with everything they have said in the past. We did do it and it did help somewhat. we still experiment with intermittent cache issues all the time, which is unresolved iwth Sitefinity support. The ticket has been open for a very, very long time.
Best of luck. If you find any resolution that resolves the caching 100%, please feel free to share.
Is there a way to clear cache on specific pages or globally at all now?
We're on 9.1 and are still facing some cache issues - possibly specific to our use case, because some dynamic pages are better off cached as they pull content from the database are accessed a lot; whereas others, we'd like to be able to clear the cache on urgent updates.
