For now, let's set Page cache to Normal as this is recommended.
Page caching prevents Drupal from loading and processing pages every time they
are requested, instead, it stores a copy of a processed page (known as a cached
version) and when anonymous users visit the site, who are less likely to use dynamic
elements that require processing, Drupal serves the cached page. With websites
under lots of strain, caching is very useful to reduce unnecessary load on the server
from many visits. The Minimum cache lifetime prevents Drupal from processing
the page too frequently, ensuring a cache is used for at least a specific amount of time
before a new, more up-to-date copy, is processed. This setting is more suited for very
Every time a user visits our site data is transferred from our web server to the user;
this data transfer is commonly within a specific bandwidth set by hosting companies
or service providers. Very busy sites can use lots of bandwidth, which can in turn
cost the website owners money. Drupal has some basic Bandwidth optimizations
available for us.
