Have you actually profiled your code to see where the pain points are
vs saying 'module?' Are you also running an opcode cache? From there
you can use data, block, or full page caching. Finally you can figure
out if you want to store it in flat files or memory. I'd start by
knowing what is actually the slow part using Xdebug and nail a few
There is no end all solution. Some pages really don't have a lot
going on and are hardly updated so full page is fine. Others might
have something that is hard to generate on a sidebar, so block caching
would be more suitable for that. As previously mentioned, Zend_Cache
is up to the task. There is also a PEAR package called Cache_Lite
which would work to if you're interested in file based caching.
