Configure the PropertyStore cache

Abstract

How to change the caching for the PropertyStore.

Applies to

Content Management

The size of the PropertyStore cache on a Content Management (CM) server might have an impact on the login process. You can see if this cache is running full by browsing to /sitecore/admin/cache.aspx. When the cache is full, it is cleared and this can slow down the login process afterwards. The default size of this cache is 5 MB.

The setting of the cache size is not part of the configuration but you can change the value by patching the configuration.

To set the size of the cache, for example, to 20 MB:

  • Create the following patch file:

    <configuration xmlns:patch="http://www.sitecore.net/xmlconfig/">
     <sitecore>
       <settings>
         <setting name="Caching.DefaultPropertyCacheSize" value="20MB" />
       </settings>
      </sitecore>
    </configuration>
