We have a Sharepoint 2013 deployment where we are running low on memory, and we are not able to allocate more memory for this server any time soon. As a mitigation of this problem, we are considering disabling the distributed cache service (simply using Remove-SPDistributedCacheServiceInstance in Powershell). We have done this on a test deployment, but the sharepoint logs still indicate attempted connections to the cache service.
My questions are:
- What are the implications of disabling the distributed cache alltogether, with regards to performance and stability?
- Is there a way of telling SharePoint to not attempt connections to the distributed cache at all?
The farm consists of two Sharepoint 2013 servers with a separate database server.
