Relevant Search: With Applications for Solr and Elasticsearch

For more in depth reading about search, ranking and generally everything you could ever want to know about how lucene, elasticsearch or solr work under the hood I highly suggest this book. Easily one of the most interesting technical books I have read in a long time. If you are tasked with solving search relevance problems even if not in Solr or Elasticsearch it should be your first reference. Amazon Affiliate Link

426<h1>Web Page Caching<a class="headerlink" href="#web-page-caching" title="Permalink to this headline"></a></h1>
427<p>CodeIgniter lets you cache your pages in order to achieve maximum
428performance.</p>
429<p>Although CodeIgniter is quite fast, the amount of dynamic information
430you display in your pages will correlate directly to the server
431resources, memory, and processing cycles utilized, which affect your
432page load speeds. By caching your pages, since they are saved in their
433fully rendered state, you can achieve performance that nears that of
434static web pages.</p>
435<div class="section" id="how-does-caching-work">
436<h2>How Does Caching Work?<a class="headerlink" href="#how-does-caching-work" title="Permalink to this headline"></a></h2>
437<p>Caching can be enabled on a per-page basis, and you can set the length
438of time that a page should remain cached before being refreshed. When a
439page is loaded for the first time, the cache file will be written to
440your application/cache folder. On subsequent page loads the cache file
441will be retrieved and sent to the requesting user’s browser. If it has
442expired, it will be deleted and refreshed before being sent to the
443browser.</p>
444</div>
445<div class="section" id="enabling-caching">
446<h2>Enabling Caching<a class="headerlink" href="#enabling-caching" title="Permalink to this headline"></a></h2>
447<p>To enable caching, put the following tag in any of your controller
448methods:</p>
449<div class="highlight-ci"><div class="highlight"><pre><span></span><span class="nv">$this</span><span class="o">-&gt;</span><span class="na">output</span><span class="o">-&gt;</span><span class="na">cache</span><span class="p">(</span><span class="nv">$n</span><span class="p">);</span>
450</pre></div>
451</div>
452<p>Where <code class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">$n</span></code> is the number of <strong>minutes</strong> you wish the page to remain
453cached between refreshes.</p>
454<p>The above tag can go anywhere within a method. It is not affected by
455the order that it appears, so place it wherever it seems most logical to
456you. Once the tag is in place, your pages will begin being cached.</p>
457<div class="admonition important">
458<p class="first admonition-title">Important</p>
459<p class="last">Because of the way CodeIgniter stores content for output,
460caching will only work if you are generating display for your
461controller with a <a class="reference internal" href="views.html"><span class="doc">view</span></a>.</p>

475<div class="section" id="deleting-caches">
476<h2>Deleting Caches<a class="headerlink" href="#deleting-caches" title="Permalink to this headline"></a></h2>
477<p>If you no longer wish to cache a file you can remove the caching tag and
478it will no longer be refreshed when it expires.</p>
479<div class="admonition note">
