Litespeed Cache?

    So today I was roaming through some of the things that Litespeedtech offers and came across this:

    It says vB and IPB, has anyone tried it for either of those? And has anyone tried it for xF? Is this not something a sysadmin could set up (sorry for my ignorance, I've hired sysadmins so I don't have to deal with the server headaches)?

    I'm about to try LiteSpeed for vbulletin. Yes, a sysadmin should be able to install it. Litespeed goes on top of Apache. AFAIK there is no Litespeed cache for XenForo yet. I really hope they will add it.

    The only thing LiteSpeed has to do with Apache is its ability to convert/use Apache config files. It is completely separate from Apache.

    Does not compete with the speeds LiteSpeed gives you.

    I haven't dabbled with their Cache, but their server software is my preference for all my servers.

    LiteSpeed has its own cache, similar to Varnish.

    Varnish is not an opcache.

    Here is George his comparison between Varnish and Litespeed cache: http://www.litespeedtech.com/support/forum/showthread.php?t=4603
    Even though this relates to vbulletin, it does indicate that LiteSpeed cache would be very nice to have for XF.

    I have read several different comparisons between the two and it was usually Varnish + Apache > Litespeed Cache...although this article seems to be well composed so I might have a second look at it.

    Uh... Where would you have seen that? Apache isn't even comparable to LiteSpeed if their tests were done correctly (vanilla installs and nothing to optimize them other than Varnish/LiteSpeed Cache).

    You might want to go over his conclusion again.

    Blame the statistic tables, they're a bit overwhelming.

    So has anyone have xf with litespeed cache enabled?

    I'm very interested in this.

    I would like to see if Litespeed cache is worth it as well. I have Xenforo running with the free version of Litespeed, XCache, and Memcached as a back-end cache here: http://www.waywardinn.com/forum/
    It's pretty fast - no complaints here. But I am always curious to see how much better it might perform. :)

    Varnish/Litespeed cache used to cache guest requests. They cache entire pages and response to requests without execute php. Extremely useful for home, index pages & busy sites.

    Did you manage to implement cache under litespeed?

    No. Moved to nginx.
