Microsoft Azure – Disk Caching

Within the previous chapter, ‘Disk Configuration,’ we saw how we had to settle on cache preference for the disk we attached. Although, by default, it’s ‘none.’ we will choose read-only or read/write as per our requirements. This chapter will discuss how this setting affects the performance of input/output operations.

Typically, cache settings make considerable improvement when read-write operations with a great deal of knowledge are done. However, if many random I/O operations are done, turning the cache off is preferable as operations on cache incur charges on the idea of several transactions. Thus, random processes won’t make any significant performance improvement.

Read cache improves the performance when data is read before, during input-output operations, and stored into the stock. Also, the cache should be large enough to keep all the info.

In-memory caching for all the OS disks is completed by default unless it’s turned off manually by the user. If many random I/O operations on files are wiped out OS disks, it’s better to maneuver them during a data disk where the cache is turned off by default. Cache settings are often manipulated using PowerShell command lets, APIs, and Azure management portal. We will set the cache from the management portal while creating virtual machines and data disks.

Changing the host caching type

You might want to vary the Host caching type for disks consistent with your needs, so let’s undergo a step-by-step guide to urge this implemented:

  1. Navigate to the VM whose disk caching type you would like to vary.
  2. Navigate to the Disks blade, which is found under SETTINGS.
  3. Navigate to the disk whose caching type you would like to vary, as shown within the following screenshot:

Azure VM Disk Properties

4. Under Host caching, select the caching you would like

5. Once you’re done, click on Save.

User Questions:

1. How can we improve Azure Cache?

The time of making a Redis Cache is too long. It should be improved.

2. Azure HPC Cache New Release

HPC Cache helps customers enable High-Performance Computing workloads in Azure Compute by providing low-latency, high-throughput access to Network Attached Storage (NAS) environments. HPC Cache runs in Azure Compute, on the brink of customer compute, but has the power to access data located in Azure also as in customer datacenters.
