This parameter sets the size of the ICM Server Cache in megabytes.


See also: icm/HTTP/server_cache_<xx>.

Rule of Thumb for Calculating (Virtual) Memory Requirement

memory_needed = 2 * (2N + U) * M + S * 100000 bytes

N = icm/HTTP/server_cache_<x>/max_entries

M = icm/HTTP/server_cache_<xx>/max_name_len

U = icm/HTTP/server_cache_<xx>/max_ufo_entries

S = icm/HTTP/server_cache_<xx>/memory_size_MB

The memory required consists of:

?     The space required for the Index (2 * (2N + U) * M); the multiplications by 2 come from the implementation. In Unicode systems, the requirement is approximately twice as high.

?     The space required for the actual data in the cache (images, style sheet, and so on) (S * 100000 bytes, because S is specified in megabytes)
