PHP Pear caching

PEAR offers two different packages for caching: Cache and Cache_Lite.
As suggested by the name, Cache_Lite has a lighter design than Cache, and is designed to be faster at the expense of some flexibility and functionality.

The Cache_Lite package offers simple, fast, file-based caching. It is restricted to caching in files for speed and simplicity.
Cache_Lite provides three types of caching:

Generic caching of any data

Caching of PHP output

Caching of function return values

The idea behind Cache_Lite is that you only need to load the Cache_Lite class to use it.

It does not load the PEAR class unless needed in a raiseError() call, and not many other classes.

If you are not using a PHP code cache, this package avoids compiling code you potentially will not execute, and keeps latency down.

Example: Output Caching

Following is an example of PHP output caching that serves the entire page from the cache:



require_once "Cache/Lite/Output.php";

$time_s = utime();

if (empty($_GET['id'])) {
    die("please specify an article id!");

$cache = new Cache_Lite_Output(
    array('lifeTime' => 300, // 5 minutes
          'cacheDir' => '/tmp/article_cache/'));

if ($cache->start($_GET['id'], 'article')) {
    $cached = true;
} else {
    include_once "DB.php";
    include_once "HTML/Template/Flexy.php";

    $dbh = DB::connect("mysql://test@localhost/test");
    $article = $dbh->getRow(
        "SELECT * FROM articles WHERE id = ?",
        array($_GET['id']), DB_FETCHMODE_OBJECT);

    $dir = dirname(__FILE__);
    $tpl = new HTML_Template_Flexy(
        array('templateDir' => "$dir/templates",
              'compileDir' => "$dir/templates/compiled",
              'filters' => 'Php,SimpleTags,BodyOnly'));

    $cached = false;

$elapsed = utime() - $time_s;
printf("<div style=\"font-size:x-small\">".
       "(spent %.1fms %s)</div>\n", $elapsed * 1000,
       $cached ? "serving page from cache" : "generating page");

function utime() {
    list($usec, $sec) = explode(" ", microtime());
    return (double)$usec + $sec;


As you can see, this script only includes Cache/Lite/Output.php every time. If the page is served from a cache, no other code is loaded because DB.php and HTML/Template/Flexy.php are included only if there was no cache hit.

The $cache->start() looks up the requested entry in the cache. If it is found there and has not expired, the cached entry is printed, and the start() method returns TRue.

If a cache entry was not found, start() returns false. Then, the script connects to the database, pulls out the article, compiles a template, and displays the article. After all this, the $cache->end() call prints the output and stores it in the cache.

At the end, the cache output example displays a message to illustrate the response time difference with a cache hit.
