does zend opcode cache work with w3tc?

Posted December 24, 2014 3.6k views

its a simple question though, but seems a bit confusing to me.

does zend opcode cache work with w3tc? i saw in some place that w3tc doesn’t support zend optimizer as it follow some different way of caching.

i m on nginx, php5.5, php-fpm

one thing i must share, recently i went to stress test for my site with just 50 concurrent user and i saw my CPU level stays much lower when the zend opcode cache is turned off. don’t understand why this happened.

what should i do, please guide me someone

there are some monitors that will allow you to peer into the zend opcache to view statistics.
they can be found here:
if you want to lock down the cache viewing pages, and you have a linux workstation i would recommend running the cache veiwers on the localhost only and using a client side ssh config file to set up an ssh tunnel.
If you can’t do that then i would at least password protect the pages.

Testing takes a long time and requires very good notes. Results are difficult to control and reproduce exactly. I also would recommend running memcached.
To monitor memcache usage you can try

Also, my wordpress site is very simple and does not have a lot of fancy plugins. So i would start simple and slowly add the plugins in and test.
