We are getting these errors from time to time, and we have no idea what causing them.

We are using:

PHP 5.6.30
Redis 3.2.9

Error in logs

PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught exception 'CredisException' with message
'Read operation timed out.' in /multistore/lib/Credis/Client.php:1042

  • The error is self explaining. From time to time there is a problem with the connection to your redis server.

  • Do you know what causing them? Maybe this is a Redis specific question?

There are a few things you could try out, changing the timeout for example.

You can find the settings in: /etc/redis/redis.conf
