Caching in OTRS allows you to reuse objects that have been used recently. By default, OTRS has a disk cache. However, this could not be enough if you are planning to do a cluster or you just want to speed things up. Fortunately for us, someone coded the Memcached support. So I will talk about how I did this.

In my very specific case, the VPS where I have installed my OTRS is very slow on I/O operations, so putting a Memcached configuration helped a lot!

Disclaimer: I am not the author of this patch. I just did the .patch file more friendly.

Follow these steps:

  1. Install the Perl-Cache-Memcached-Fast package, if you are using my RPM's I have already package as an RPM. Just type the command yum install perl-Cache-Memcached-Fast
  2. Download the Memcached Patch I have done

  5. Edit the OTRS Core::Cache Settings, enable Memcached and review the parameters
  6. Restart Apache
