C# Caching on Shared Hosting Server

Is it possible to use data caching on an asp.net 3.5 web application in a shared hosting environment?  I can't find any references to support or deny this question.  

And if it is possible, since its shared memory then, what could one expect for performance metrics?  With no dedicated memory, how much could really be cached even? If data caching is a large need for performance, would it be more advisable to get a VPS solution or dedicated server? Really don't have the money right now and obviously those solutions are better all around, are they a must?

Please include links that will back-up any answer unless you are an absolute expert.

Thanks in advance.

Best is to go for the dedicated solution.
In shared hosting, memory is always a contraint

You have stated the obvious, not very helpful sir.  There were several questions there, I will list them again.

1. Will data caching in an asp.net 3.5 web application even work in a shared hosting environment?

2. Are there baseline metrics for caching performance that one could use against the shared hosting metrics?

3. Is there a way to globally monitor the .net cache for a specific site to obtain some metrics to compare against baseline/ideal?

Please provide any links or documentation supporting your claims, I can't find any myself.

Thanks.

1) Yes, but they might cap the amount of RAM assigned to your application pool which means your cache could cleared more often than you realize or serialized to disk which is slow.  That cap could be very low.

2) You'd have to contact your provider

3) No.  You have to measure cache hit/misses yourself and decide what numbers are valid based on your design.  For example in one application I've written I'm happen if the cache hit/miss ratio is 1/5 but in another I expect it to be 3/4.

The reason you can't find any references using Google is an answer in itself.  If no one else has solved the problem there might not be a solution!
