  1. Implement Redis caching for SharePoint

    With the deprecation of AppFabric, SharePoint requires a robust caching mechanism for session state, logon tokens, and more in order to avoid requiring persistent connections on load balancers, in addition to improving performance. Another plus would be to use Redis cache clusters that were not part of any SharePoint farm. That is, allow multiple farms to leverage to leverage a single Redis cache server. This may also allow a customer to run non-Windows servers for Redis.

      (1) check to make sure that there are no more than two dcache hosts per farm.

      (2) check to make sure that the size of the dcache is less than 16 GB and is proportionate to the total and/or available amount of RAM on the servers. Offer to run Update-SPDistributedCacheSize -CacheSizeInMB at ideal settings for the administrator.
