The MDVA-30102 patch solves the issue of the Redis cache getting full and generating errors, causing problems with Product Listing Pages (PLP) and Product Detail Pages (PDP) such as missing products. This patch is available when the Magento Quality Patch (MQP) tool v1.0.6 is installed.
Affected products and versions
- The patch was designed for Magento Commerce Cloud 2.3.5-p1.
- The patch is also compatible with Magento Commerce / Magento Commerce Cloud 2.3.2-2.4.0.
Note: the patch can be applicable to other versions with new MQP tool releases. To check if the patch is compatible with your Magento version, run
Redis cache is getting full and the allocated
maxmemory appears to be insufficient. The layout cache didn't have TTL and was not evicted causing cache growth and eviction of other keys in Redis. As the result all Redis memory was allocated for layout cache.
Steps to reproduce:
- The user must be on Magento Commerce 2.4 and have 100K simple products (product type does not matter) and 50 categories.
- Redis cache must be configured according to steps in DevDocs Magento Configuration Guide > Use Redis for the Magento page and default cache.
- Browse through all the PDPs and PLPs. You can use OWASP ZAP to crawl the site.
- Observe the Redis memory usage.
- Also check current configuration and used memory. Run the following command in the CLI. It checks for used memory, maxmemory, evicted keys, and Redis up time in days:
redis-cli -p REDIS_PORT -h REDIS_HOST info | egrep --color "(role|used_memory_peak|maxmemory|evicted_keys|uptime_in_days)"
Redis cache grows up to ~5GB. There is a max limit of 8GB of Redis memory, so if you have 1M products you will run out memory very quickly.
Redis cache should not be rapidly growing.
