CONFIG PARAMETER: cache_pages <number>

DEFAULT: 40

The cache_pages option specifies the size of the hashpage cache. The size of the cache cannot be changed after the server starts using @admin. The value must be set within the configuration file and if changed, a server restart is required.

The most effective type of caching occurs one level higher (see max_cache_size). However, for larger games, it is often necessary to increase cache_pages as well since it caches at a lower level.

Recommendations:

  1. Have a minimum of 10 hash pages or the server itself with thrash the cache.
  2. Have one cache page per active player or simple paging with thrash the cache.

The default of 40 pages should support up to 100 active players.
