  • Wincache Update For PHP 5.4 - Timeline?

    Mar 02, 2012 09:27 AM|laurin1|LINK

    @jennylaw - I thought you indicated before that if this was needed, that you (or someone on your team) would do compile Wincache for 5.4. However, I cannot find the post in which you stated as much.

     Can you give us a timeline or at least a confirmation that the compilation of Wincache for 5.4 is in queue? If not, I need to know so that I can plan on making the time to try to do this myself. It's not something that I am comfortable with, but we really need this to happen (and so do several others.)

    Any chance this will happen?

    We can't keep guessing if this product is till alive.

    Has anyone had any luck with APC or...? Is moving to full LAMP the only long-term solution?

     Yep. This is exactly what we did. Moved to Linux / Apache with APC. Have not looked back sense then. APC is very stable compared to Wincache, and has fairly decent development (though the product works without issues). We gave up on Microsoft completely (OS, SQL, and Email). The way they are treating their loyal users speaks volumes about how much they really do truly "care" about open source and PHP.


    @laurin1 - we've been told a lot of things :) None of seems to be true.

    This is something that the IIS product team is actively investigating, but I cannot comment on a firm schedule.   As we are making progress, I may reach out to the individuals on this thread for evaluation (consider it pre-release "testing"), please indicate your level of interest on this thread (as a reply).

    Thanks.

     As much as I appreciate a response from MS after a long period of silence, I have to make my expectation clear.

     All of us on this forum are running businesses on IIS and PHP. The SLA for delivering stack components of any company committed to our success is measured in weeks; and not many of them.

    A market leader would have released a PHP 5.4 compatible release within days of launch.

    I suggest the IIS team either commit to PHP and us, their customers, long-term, or take down the part of the IIS homepage that claims proper PHP support. I'd respect the honesty in such a move.

    On the other hand, having to prod the team to get attention and even test framework components myself is not reassuring.

     Long-term the current pattern is not sustainable.

    Could you help me understand your question regarding FastCGI?   What are your expectations?

    If the question is "Will I be able to run PHP 5.4 on IIS", then the answer is yes, that's the goal.   But we believe we can do that without making changes to FastCGI.

    If the question is more around different improvements/changes for FastCGI, then no, that's not something we are working on near term.

    Wait; What isn't working at the moment? I'm running PHP 5.4 on IIS7.5 perfectly fine here.

    In addition to that, I am highly interested in providing QA feedback with regards to WinCache as it is an essential component to my hosting platform. Holding me back to PHP 5.4 vanilla at the moment, and the performance improvements in the core aren't enough to make up for the loss of WinCache at the moment.

    WinCache 1.1, as it stands now, isn't working correctly for PHP 5.4 on IIS.   You can run PHP 5.4 on IIS without WinCache, but the performance would not be good.   Supporting WinCache for PHP 5.4 is something that we are working on, but it is too early to discuss schedule, etc.   I will circle back to this thread when it is ready for controlled testing.

    Please use this forum for any feedback.   Thanks.

    1.3.0 release:
    - Added support for PHP 5.4, which includes support for the following:
    * Zend Engine 2.4 structures (znode_op, zend_class_entry, etc.).
    * Interned strings.
    * Stop hooking zend_stream_open_function, due to breaking change in Zend 2.4.
    * Removed PG(safe_mode) and php_checkuid() checks for Zend 2.4.
    - Cleaned up const compiler warnings.
    - Cleaned up random comments to make them PECL coding standards conformant.

    1.3.0 beta 2012-04-26 WINCACHE-1.3.0.tgz (140.6kB)

    I changed maximum sizes in precomp.h to 1000 (each),
    but setting the maximum values was not possible (php-cgi crash)

    What worked for me, in initial tests (under Apache!):

    wincache.ocachesize = 512
    wincache.fcachesize = 384
    wincache.ucachesize = 384

    Edit: subsequent tests showed that any of these values above 934 caused php-cgi.exe to crash, so I compiled 934 as maximum. However, you cannot increase all values to 934. The readme.txt in the (renewed) download package contains some working examples.

    That is a pity. I have no experience with IIS, so I cannot help you. Googling around about w3wp.exe, I found that it uses its own memory cache and application pool. It does not surprise me that there may be conflicts, especially if w3wp.exe is using lots of memory:

     Does your site get a fair amount of traffic @laurin1? Ours does and that is what caused PHP to stop serving files and or the worker process to crash. Another site that is used for back-end administration that used Wincache did not suffer from these issues, however it was only used by staff members.

     I setup a test server with IIS 7.5, PHP 5.4.3 and the build of Wincache provided above. Ran a web stress test tool against it, and within 40 seconds the application would crash. Without Wincache it ran for hours without issues. One thing I did notice however, setting the max child processes for FastCGI to 1 allowed PHP to run much longer without any crashes. Value of 0 caused the application to open up 10 - 15 PHP processes and crash within a 30 - 40 seconds. A value of 2 ran for about 3 hours before PHP files would just stop serving.

     Yes. Does it get as much as your stress test? No idea. We are an Intranet only site with 85 users that use it very heavily, and Wincache is used extensively.

    If wincache were the culprit, I would expect the faulting process to php-cgi.exe, not w3wp.exe.  php_wincache.dll is loaded into the php-cgi.exe process address space.

    If you can get a crash dump of the faulting process, that would be super helpful in diagnosing your problem.

    I've started testing the new build for PHP 5.4. I'm using PHP 5.4.3, and we don't use the file cache so I usually just disable it with: wincache.fcenabled=0. This statement isn't working with the new test build of Wincache. The Wincache control panel says it is off, but the files are still being cached.

    Ah, nevermind, I figured it out:

    If wincache.ocenabled=1, it forces files to be cached (namely the files for which the opcodes have been cached).  This is By Design.

    If you set wincache.ocenabled=0 and wincache.fcenabled=0, then you will truly disable the cache.

    Hi,

    I have installed WinCache 1.3.4 on a local test host (Windows 7) with PHP 5.4.4 RC2.

    I use Opcode Cache, File System Cache, Session Cache and Resolve Path Cache. I do not use User Cache.

    All the functions of the website seems to work fine. I didn't notify any bug for the moment.

    Just a strange thing in the wincache.php page. When I refresh the page several times in a row (Summary tab), sometimes the Cache scope line displays the term "global" and sometimes it displays "local" with different opcode cache values in the table below. What does this mean ? This random change does not occur on the Opcode Cache tab where it is always "local"...

    Do you think WinCache 1.3.4 is enough stable for enabling it on a my production server (IIS 6.0) ?

    I have had stability issues in the past with WinCache 1.2 (HTTP 500 errors sometimes) instead of WinCache 1.1 which is more stable. I am so returned under the 1.1 version. I hope I will not have the same random errors with the 1.3 version after it goes live on my server.

    Do you have an approximative date for the WinCache 1.3.x final version ?

    Where can we find the WinCache 1.3.3 release notes ? Not avaible on SourceForge.

    Thanks.

    This is the first I've heard of an issue with the statistics reporting functions in Wincache.  I didn't touch them when adding the PHP 5.4 support, so I'm assuming that these are issues which existed in the Wincache 1.2.x versions.  I will dig into the code and try to figure out what the difference between "local" and "global" means in this context.

    I have had stability issues in the past with WinCache 1.2 (HTTP 500 errors sometimes) instead of WinCache 1.1 which is more stable. I am so returned under the 1.1 version. I hope I will not have the same random errors with the 1.3 version after it goes live on my server.

    We have been unable to repro the 500 errors, even under stress load situations.  Speaking generally: Until we have an "in-house" repro of a problem, it's nearly impossible for us to investigate and fix an issue.  If you could help us understand the scenario(s) which lead to these 500 errors, that would be supremely wonderful!

    We are still working on compatibility testing and investigating performance behaviors.  I am not authorized to provide an ETA at this time.

    Thank you, and please continue helping us test & identify issues with Wincache!

    PHP wincache wincache Extension for php PHP 5.4

  • Re: Wincache Update For PHP 5.4 - Timeline?

    I have verified some things. The random change of the Cache scope value local/global is also present with WinCache 1.1 and 1.2, not only with WinCache 1.3. But in fact, I only see this random problem on my local IIS 7.5 (Windows 7 host) and not with the IIS 6.0 server where the value is always global.

    I understand for the reproduction of the HTTP 500 errors. When I will install WinCache 1.3 on the production server, if I see them yet, I will send you a dump file. I specify my production server runs Windows Server 2003 (IIS 6.0). Perhaps, WinCache is more stable with IIS 7.x ?

    Bye

    FYI--

    Kanwal was good enough to forward a blog post explaining the variance in the reporting statistics:

    http://www.ksingla.net/2010/01/wincache-statistics-page-inconsistencies-explained/

    The post explains how Wincache uses memory, and how the statistics can vary when wincache can't create some of the cross-process shared memory segments, and has to create local memory segments.  It's good reading for understanding how Wincache works.

    I hope this helps,

    Thanks for this link. So Local and Global values are "normal".

    An other thing about WinCache 1.3.x. The bug with the installer already present in WinCache 1.2.1208 is yet present with the 1.3.4 version.

    When I execute the EXE file under Windows Server 2003, I obtain the error :

    The image file E:\................\wincache-1.3.4-dev-5.4-nts-vc9-x86.exe is valid, but it is for a different type of computer than the actual computer.

    I have already reported this issue with the installer and NT 5.x six months ago :

    http://forums.iis.net/p/1184705/2008684.aspx

    No problem to extract the DLL file under Windows 7.

    Thanks to solve this issue.

    Just upgraded my production server to PHP 5.4.4 and WinCache 1.3.4. It's run fine for the moment.

    Where are we with this?

    Was an RTM version released?

    We are actively testing WinCache 1.3 with various open source applications on PHP 5.4, so we have not signed off as an RTM yet.

     Have you guys verified that 1.3 works with Wordpress and allows plugins etc. to be updated without issues?

    We have tested with Wordpress, and it succeeds.  I have not personally tested the plugins scenario; I will check with our tester to see if we add WP plugins and test the update/upgrade path.

    Thx!

    And we are back to the old pattern of the IIS team going dark. This time in the middle of product development.

    Why do you have to get us all angry at you before you even release the product?

    Simply give us a ship date. Is that so hard?

    Hi Cando22,

    The RTM of WinCache 1.3.4 for PHP 5.4 was officially released in late July - and has been available through the Web Platform Installer and at the following URL since its release:

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/wincache/files/wincache-1.3.4/

    I had also written a blog officially announcing it when it was released:

    http://blogs.msdn.com/b/robert_mcmurray/archive/2012/07/26/windows-cache-1-3-for-for-php-5-4.aspx

    But that being said, I did not post to all of the related threads about the release - my bad. :-)

    Thanks for getting it done. But now I am double peeved.

    Google does not think you posted. If its not on the first page of search results it did not happen.

    Apparently the locations you are willing to update does not include the front page of your own Wincache support forum. This page only shows the pre-release build.

    http://forums.iis.net/1164.aspx

    The official page does have the 1.3 link, but it's titled 1.1 and shows an outdated feature set.

    http://www.iis.net/downloads/microsoft/wincache-extension

    Can I not expect MS to release a product on the products own homepage? Sorry, but that stuff gets to me.

    Thanks, Cando22. You are correct that the page at http://www.iis.net/downloads/microsoft/wincache-extension was mislabeled, and that has been corrected. While it's small consolation, we were under a content freeze due to the migration of IIS.net to new servers that are running Windows Server 2012 RTM as well as rolling out the new version of IIS.net. There were a few places where content needed to be updated now that the content freeze has ended; this is one of those areas, so I appreciate the head's up.

    But that being said, even though the page was mislabeled, we had managed to get the link for WinCache 1.3.4 for PHP 5.4 in the "additional downloads" section of that page before the content freeze went into effect, so it was still possible to get to the correct version through the download page.
