I am using Magento EE 2.1.1 and FPC is enabled (built-in).

What I suppose is, if any page(homepage, category or product pages) is accessed next time, Magento should dispatch whole page content from the cache. But this is not happening. I can see many individual blocks are getting rendered.

Can anyone shed some lights on it, please?

  • Is it normal behavior? or a bug in Magento EE 2.1.1
  • Will full page only be cached in case of Varnish instead of built-in FPC?

NOTE: The value of HTTP header X-Magento-Cache-Debug is always MISS

  • What does your bin/magento binary tell you? Is FPC enabled entirely? Or are some settings set up to not cache? I also see you have a http header with a debug rule, this implies you're not running production, maybe there's a distinct difference there? Also, Varnish is the default FPC for Magento 2 EE . It's actually quite expensive to cache punch cached pages in Varnish which is a shame really. Last thing: have you made sure Varnish is working properly? – Merijn Oct 13 '17 at 7:53
  • I am not sure what you mean by ' What does your bin/magento binary tell you?' and FYI, I am using in-built FPC. – MagePsycho Oct 13 '17 at 10:42

Most common issue is a block included in all pages with cacheable = false. Maybe an extension with this declaration in default.xml. See vendor/magento/framework/View/Layout.php, function isCacheable.

In particular:

`$this->getXml()->xpath('//' . Element::TYPE_BLOCK . '[@cacheable="false"]')`

To debug page load and save, see bellow. But before it, I would start with the above.

The page is loaded/saved from page cache type with these entry points:



This class is an around plugin on vendor/magento/framework/View/Result/Layout.php , renderResult function. Layout is a more complex version of vendor/magento/framework/Controller/Result/Raw.php. Raw builds a page in a string ($content = 'All that it is';). Layout builds the page using XML layout (a tree of blocks/ a tree of strings).

All plugins contain straight forward code and there is no need for further code explanation. Cache is HIT when the page is found in cache. If not in cache, than it allows the application to build the content (html; there is a check that JSON should not be cached, ..) and saves in cache page's html for the next time.

In the 2 plugins (FrontController mostly) you can start debugging and see when it fails. The cause of your issue will be exposed by other parts of the code and to me it looks like it's caused by your setup.

If anything, there is a fix in Kernel.php https://github.com/magento/magento2/commit/861f596371825d9e24672cd613229ae9486c635f I personally find it odd.
