Re: Is caching an 'Architectural Smell'?

Oh yes. Caching reeks, specifically the "add-on" cache where you can bolt a cache onto something to "improve" performance. Caches that work are designed into the system as a core part of its design - like processor caches, or disk subsystem caches. You can't configure them, you can't turn them off, and you might not even know they are there. Adding a cache into an existing pipeline because you have to fix a problem is definitely a smell.
