Sitecore hidden ‘caching’ configuration settings

Hi there,

4 months ago I posted my blogpost Sitecore hidden string configuration settings, and it received a lot of retweets on Twitter, probably there were settings in there that were not known to most of the Sitecore people out there.

I then though why don’t I write a second blogpost on hidden settings. In this blogpost I’m going to give you an exclusive overview of Sitecore’s hidden configuration settings that are not by default configurable in the web.config file. This overview is based upon the latest initial release version of Sitecore 7.2 (Sitecore.NET 7.2 (rev. 140228)).

In this blogpost you will find only the cache settings that are hidden.

Here we go:

<setting name=”Caching.BlobIDCacheSize” value=”500KB” />
Determines the size of the cache that stores blob IDs. Specify the value in bytes or append the value with KB, MB or GB. The default value is 500KB.

<setting name=”Caching.DebugEnabled” value=”false” />
Gets a value indicating whether to output debug information that can help to identify cache issues. The default value is false.

<setting name=”Caching.DefaultItemCacheSize” value=”10MB” />
Determines the size of the default item cache. Specify the value in bytes or append the value with KB, MB or GB. The default value is 10MB.

<setting name=”Caching.Priority” value=”CachePriority.Normal” />
Gets the default cache priority. The default value is CachePriority.Normal. Other values can be: Lowest, Low, Below normal, Normal, Above normal, High, Highest & Never remove

<setting name=”Caching.DefaultPropertyCacheSize” value=”500KB” />
Determines the size of the default property cache. Specify the value in bytes or append the value with KB, MB or GB. The default value is 500KB.

<setting name=”Caching.DefaultProxyCacheSize” value=”500KB” />
Determines the size of the default proxy cache. Specify the value in bytes or append the value with KB, MB or GB. The default value is 500KB.

<setting name=”Caching.DefaultTemplateCacheSize” value=”5MB” />
Determines the size of the default template cache. Specify the value in bytes or append the value with KB, MB or GB. The default value is 5MB. This setting isn’t referenced anymore in Sitecore 7.2. But it might be in the future. That’s why I included it in this blogpost. Just for google puposes.

<setting name=”Caching.HugeCacheSize” value=”100MB” />
Determines the size of a huge cache. Specify the value in bytes or append the value with KB, MB or GB. The default value is 100MB. This setting isn’t referenced anymore in Sitecore 7.2. But it might be in the future. That’s why I included it in this blogpost. Just for google puposes.

<setting name=”Caching.LargeCacheSize” value=”10MB” />
Determines the size of a large cache. Specify the value in bytes or append the value with KB, MB or GB. The default value is 10MB. This setting isn’t referenced anymore in Sitecore 7.2. But it might be in the future. That’s why I included it in this blogpost. Just for google puposes.

<setting name=”Caching.MediumCacheSize” value=”1MB” />

Determines the size of a tiny cache. Specify the value in bytes or append the value with KB, MB or GB. The default value is 10KB. This setting isn’t referenced anymore in Sitecore 7.2. But it might be in the future. That’s why I included it in this blogpost. Just for google puposes.

<setting name=”Caching.VirtualUserStateIDCacheSize” value=”1MB” />

    Many thanks for the information. I was looking for info on how to configure the blobids cache specifically tonight and stumbled on your blog. FWIW, the instance I’m tuning is a 6.6 instance, and that setting works on it as well.
