Re: Is caching an 'Architectural Smell'?

I definitely agree with you. Caching is an optimization, so when it is done prematurely it often causes more harm than good. Also, there are really two types of caches: read-only and write-through, using the correct one is important. Throwing a cache into the mix when it gets very few hits slows down the system and wastes memory. All optimization techniques can be used to speed things up, but they can also slow them down. They need to be used with caution and understanding. Paul.
