external cache db    what does it do

Hello Community, 


Using SugarCRM 9.01   - onsite 


I am running into an issue of my database server filling up its temp file and then slowly filling up the HDD space causing Sugar to stop functioning. 


After looking at everything I possibly can I have come to this 


Whenever a write query is performed on key_value_cache table the temp file fills exponentially until it has no more room to grow. 


I have found references to the following setting 

$sugar_config['external_cache_disabled_db'] = true

but cannot find reference as to what this actually does other than not write that query. 


Can someone tell me what this does in Sugar   and will performance be compromised if I enable this setting ? 


Any help is greatly appreciated.
