This article provides best practice for configuration settings that can help improve checkout performance in case of large number of simultaneously created orders.
Affected products and versions
If the number of simultaneously placed orders in your store is large enough and has a negative impact on checkout performance, we recommend enabling asynchronous orders processing.
To enable the setting:
php bin/magento config:set dev/grid/async_indexing 1or enable the Asynchronous indexing option in Magento Admin under Stores > Settings > Configuration > Advanced > Developer Stores > Settings > Configuration > Advanced > Developer.
- Flush cache by running
php bin/magento cache:flushor go to Magento Admin under System > Tools > Cache Management.
Warning: always test in the Staging environment prior to making any changes to the Production environment.
