Caching in SharePoint 2013. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I’m working with SharePoint for the first time and in the process of setting up an SharePoint 2013 environment to integrate with a few other applications. My questions are about caching in SharePoint 2013. In our network, I have 1 server for SharePoint 2013, another sever for SQL. Here are my questions:

    1.        SharePoint is not required to be installed on the SQL server. Is that correct?
    2.        After the SharePoint installation, I never specifically configure the cache cluster. Do I need to do this or SharePoint already did that? If SharePoint already did that, how can I get the information about the settings?
    3.        If I have to setup the cluster, where do I start? SharePoint PowerShell or app fabric?

    I will have some more questions, depending on your answers.

  • there is no requirement to isntall SharePoint on SQL server, rather it good if you have dedicated SQL server.

  • Thank you for the information!

    I can that the issue has to do with setting up caching for SharePoint. My issue is my SharePoint is working fine by itself. I installed apps from the SharePoint stores and use them without any issue. Obviously my configuration for caching is not enough to go beyond 1 server.

    I setup the distributed cache using installation wizard so I don’t know exactly what was configured for that service. Is there anyway to find out? What can I do to change that?

  • Hi,

    I know that you want to get the settings of distributed cache service in your environment.

    I suggest you get these using PowerShell. PowerShell is the easiest and most direct way to administer the distributed cache in SharePoint 2013.

    How to get settings using PowerShell:

  • In my setup, I have 1 sharepoint server and 1 sql server, The distributed cache was set up by the installation wizard. I never touched sharepoint there. I never thought about app fabric until now. Is this the right way to set distributed cache up?
