is Distributed cache service important to run? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have SharePoint 2013 Foundation. If "Distributed cache service" runs pages are loading around 6 t0 7 secs. If I stops, it pages are loading fast. But I am seeing below errors in events. So I don't understand, do we need to run "Distributed cache service"? important? 

    If I start, how can fast my page load?

    The SharePoint Health Analyzer detected an error.  Distributed cache service is not enabled in this deployment.
    Distributed cache service is not running in this deployment.
    Distributed cache service is not running in this deployment. For more information about this rule, see "http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=262656".

  • It is important (and unconfirmed, but may be unsupported if not running it). Part of the issue is that DC really needs a dedicated SharePoint server to run on due to it's low latency requirements. If your server is under enough load for the configuration/users it has, the DC may not be responsive enough.

  • Hi 

    SharePoint uses the Distributed Cache to store data for very fast retrieval across all entities. The Distributed Cache service provides in-memory caching services to several features in SharePoint Server 2013. Some of the features that use the Distributed Cache service include:
    · Newsfeeds
    · Authentication
    · OneNote client access
    · Security Trimming
    · Page load performance

    Distributed cache service also ties into the health rules in central administration. The SharePoint 2013 Health Analyzer has a few rules that will surface issues with the Distributed Cache service.
