Plan for feeds and the Distributed Cache service in SharePoint Server 2013
https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj219572.aspx

Microsoft has updated the following sections:

• Capacity planning for the Distributed Cache service
• Memory allocation

The memory issues have been noted here. Now we are requiring at least 34GB of memory for 16Gb Cache Servers. If more than 16GB’s are required, we now require at least 2 cache servers

Microsoft has updated the following section:

*Fine-tune the Distributed Cache service by using a Windows PowerShell script
*Changed the Graceful Shutdown procedure

In the “Fine-tune the Distributed Cache” section we called out the MaxConnectionsToServer issue and have a script to tune these settings. We are also tuning the “DistributedLogonTokenCache” and “DistributedViewStateCache” as the defaults are too small.

This should eventually eliminate many support cases that occur after customers follow bad advice from random Blogs and utilize default settings.
