How to use Redis for cache management in bagisto

Updated 23 June 2020

In this blog, we will see how to use Redis as cache management for bagisto.

Redis, which stands for Remote Dictionary Server, is a fast, open-source, in-memory key-value data store for use as a database, cache, message broker, and queue.



When the first time page is loaded, a database is queried on the server. Redis caches the query. Next time other user loads the page the results are provided from the redis without quering the actual database. It implements a persistent object cache (no expiration). An object cache works by caching the SQL queries in memory which are needed to load the web page. When the data of main database server is updated, then the corresponding key in the Redis is invalidated. So the it provides the updated data instead of caching the data. If a query is not available in Redis, the database provides the result and it adds the result to its cache.
