Example App for Heroku
gem install bundler bundle install
Then create a database and run your migrations
bundle exec rake db:create bundle exec rake db:migrate
Create your production database
bundle exec rake db:create RAILS_ENV=production
bundle exec assets:precompile
Start your server
foreman start # production
Visit http://localhost:5000 and view your logs, you should see some cache entries
cache: [GET /assets/application-193197163ac0c1601c69cbdaf22f6ce6.css] miss, store cache: [GET /assets/application-bf044948e75c7535c35baf4b42604116.js] miss, store cache: [GET /assets/rails-782b548cc1ba7f898cdad2d9eb8420d2.png] miss, store
Refresh the page and you should see that those entries can be pulled fresh from cache
cache: [GET /assets/application-193197163ac0c1601c69cbdaf22f6ce6.css] fresh cache: [GET /assets/application-bf044948e75c7535c35baf4b42604116.js] fresh cache: [GET /assets/rails-782b548cc1ba7f898cdad2d9eb8420d2.png] fresh
When you modify a file such as
app/assets/stylsheets/screen.css and run
rake assets:precompile and then start and stop your server, you should see that there is now a new digest for the file and it must be stored in cache again.
The metastore holds metadata about the objects in cache. Metastore entries are small and accessed frequently. It makes alot of sense to put this data in a fast light datastore such as Memcache
The entity store is where the objects get cached. Entity store objects are typically large and accessed infrequently. For that reason it might make sense to store them on disk rather than to take up a large amount of room in Memcache.
