An all too common web site failure is overwhelming (running out of space on) log partition. It can happen due to a failure to rotate and offload log files, unexpected spike in traffic and similar conditions.

A normal reaction to such out-of-space condition is  for web server to abort serving requests (exit) and hope that some kind of monitoring system catches such down  condition,   IT person logs in and rectifies the problem.  All the while the users are receiving error message. Clearly less than desirable situation.

If it is more important to you to continue serving user requests than it is to make sure each user request is logged, you can instruct Aicache to ignore write failures via  stay_up_on_write_error global setting.
