Why to use Kitt Cache Crawler for W3 Total Cache Plugin
Cache plugins for WordPress abound, but few are as popular as the W3 Total Cache plugin. After all, in addition to the actual cache function, it offers numerous functions for optimization and thus for improving the loading time. Even if these optimization functions are not significantly different from those of other cache plugins, the W3 Total Cache plugin has the advantage that you can use this plugin with a conventional server configuration. It does not need a special web server, as is the case with the LiteSpeed LScache plugin, although you can sometimes see a significant performance advantage with the LiteSpee LScache plugin. Despite these differences, all cache plugins share the same disadvantage. In order to be able to use the advantages of the page cache, this cache must be warmed up. Almost every cache plugin has a built-in crawler, but these are all far too slow, are not very flexible and cause a noticeably high server load. When using Wordpress and the WooCommerce plugin professionally, the built-in crawler can hardly keep up with the sometimes frequent purge processes of the cache. This significant disadvantage almost completely negates the benefit of the cache.
Kitt The Cache Crawler solves this significant problem. Kitt was not specifically designed to meet the needs of a page cache, but also to the needs of the W3 Total Cache Plugin for Wordpress. Kitt is therefore not only lightning fast and crawls up to 200,000 URLs per hour, but also adapts itself to the current load conditions of the server. If conventional crawlers are usually started at night because fewer visitors are expected at that time, this does not matter to Kitt. Kitt automatically adjusts the crawling speed to the current load, so that the server is never overloaded and the front end is never restricted.
