Can more cache items cause performance issues?

Naresh Ede asked on April 22, 2020 17:00

Hi All,

I have added caching of items in macros, Currenty it is showing the count of cache items around 62k, and there is a chance of increasing the items more.

If the cache items increases more, Is there any chance of performace issues because of cache items?

I just want to know where all these cache items will be stored, file system or database ?

Cache items:62843



Dependency changed:2624

It is Kentico native in-memory cache. Follow general recommendations, but it really depends on the nature of your web site. If you have 60k items they actually might have small memory foot print. Number of items depends on cache interval and traffic on your site. Unless you have memory issues (i.e. leaks or out of memory) and the server is stable, then there is no reason to worry.
