I have a new client is experiencing REDIS spikes and it is reflected in NewRelic

enter image description here

This is the 2nd call with this same problem this week and I am wondering if there is a good solution to REDIS slowness and site slowness?

Is clearing the REDIS cache on a daily or weekly basis a good practice?

  • is it remote or local?

  • It is local to the box Commented Jan 29, 2016 at 21:47
  • have you tried this page to debug your issue redis.io/topics/latency and yes you can comment all save, and restart redis.

Latency spike can be caused by a few things. Mostly its caused by BGSAVE saving to disk. Do you have BGSAVE enabled? What hardware are you running on?
