Overview

High Performance Cache with Varnish support

Quick & Versatile Performance Boost

Few know that Magento out of the box actually doesn't cache any frontend blocks other than Navigation and Footer, which are basically static as they are. This module enhances performance by giving developers a simple interface for caching any block they want, and comes with good default settings.

Simple Configuration

Choose what you want to cache and where, via simple layout XML changes - per layout handle. There is also support for disabling cache for specific handles such as the checkout, where you don't want to load the main content block from cache.

Varnish + ESI support (Experimental)

Varnish support is built into the actual module. Caching is done on a granular level, keeping the session-dependent blocks cached on a user level until something has actually changed. This means loading times can get extremely low and that whole pages can be served directly from Varnish memory. Check layout/madecache.xml for examples.

Block Level Profiling

A separate profiler is included which gives insight into the different block renderings times, making it easier for a developer to determing which block to cache or not.

Unobtrusive & Future Proof

Events are used instead of block rewrites, and no core functionality is modified. This means that there will be no interference with other modules, and that manual block cache settings are preserved. Implementing block cache is vital when scaling Magento. Be sure to do this before residing to full page cache.

Q&A

checkout cart problems

It works and made my store fly, but customers could not add products to the cart. Therefore I had to deinstal it again. It does not make sense if somehow there are checkout problems. Is there a fix?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great extension This extension made my magento store fly. I totally recommend this to all, who have Varnish server installed. However there's one bug: The product's quantity doesn't update after orders. For example if my store has Product X only one piece left and Customer A buys it, the products page should disappear from category (or should become out of stock)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from How can I recommend a product with No support whatsoever? The product sounds great. But there is absolutely no way of getting any help to get it working? I installed and just getting blank pages everywhere. Manually clearing the cache and the pages work....for the first click ONLY, then revisiting any page gives a blank page again. So frustrating that there is no support for this product. In the admin cache management it says 'Full page cache. Requires a configured Varnish daemon, see https://www.varnish-cache.org/ ' What on earth does that mean? Spend a day looking through the Varnish site? That link just goes to the site and is of no use whatsoever. Please can you explain why we are getting blank pages?

Rated out of 5 by from Works perfectly, does wonders with page responsiveness. Will install on all my customer stores right away! Small bug: Running the default theme, changing currencies with the dropdown does not seem to invalidate the cache. Can varnish distinguish between for example category.html and session variable currency=EUR and category.html and session variable currency=USD? All in all, great work! (and from Sweden too :-))

Rated out of 5 by from Hi, Thanks for making this FREE. "ESI is supported in conjunction with for instance Phoenix_VarnishCache" Couldn't understand this phrase. Does this mean this extension supports ESI + all the features of Phoenix_VarnishCache Regards, Moses.

Rated out of 5 by from Fantastic! I spent hours trying to figure out how to get the category view page to be cached. I installed this extension and now I'm done.
