I am having a problem with my web hosting solution. The CMS is wordpress; I installed W3 Total Cache which is too hungry for file descriptors given my disk space is subject to a quota. How can I solve this? If I can. Here some notes and links, …

W3 Total Cache

  1. https://wordpress.org/plugins/w3-total-cache/#installation
  2. https://www.boldgrid.com/support/w3-total-cache/ , the author/vendor site

  4. And a third party comment, https://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/edu/wordpress/plugins/w3-total-cache/ from inmotion hosting

See also Event Monitoring & GNUplot, which is meant to provide me with a graph/chart of the space used.

My first response is to write some scripts, as of today, I have a monitor, a trigger and an action, which weeds the cache, in full or partially according to a rule. The first, writes the number of files into a state and history file, the second reads the state file and decides if to call the 3rd program.

This isn’t working as designed, can I fix it and will it keep the ΣFD below the limit.

They promise integration with CDN systems, are they available to me via IONOS hosting. Perhaps I should check, and perhaps I should look at alternative caching providers.
