$wgLanguageConverterCacheType cache what type of contents?
Closed, ResolvedPublic



I running a Chinese wiki site with multiple servers sharing cache though a single Redis instance. The redis hit rate keep stay in a low level of 60% due to limited ram space. I trying to move some cache to local APC cache to reduce redis memory footage.

I knew that $wgParserCacheType store parsed page content. But what does the $wgLanguageConverterCacheType do? Does it affect parsed simplified and traditional Chinese page contencts, or it only affect the conversion list between simplified and traditional Chinese words?

Happy new year!

@Zoglun LanguageConverterCache caches the result of loading all language conversions, including the data from, and the data from MediaWiki:Conversiontable/* pages on your wiki. They are cached for 12 hours (as of MediaWiki 1.31).


  • It does not cache wikitext.
  • It does not cache Parser output.
  • It does not cache conversion of an article.
  • It does not cache in-page settings of an article.

The above is all cached, by ParserCache.

Cool thank you Krinkle!
