Configure Item and Data cache values

Applies to

Content Delivery, Content Management

To configure Item and Data cache values:

  1. Create a patch file for cache size values. For example, custom.caching.config

  2. Use rule-based configuration to target different environments. The following example sets custom Web database cache values for Content Delivery, and Master database cache values for Content Management:

    <configuration xmlns:patch="http://www.sitecore.net/xmlconfig/" 
    xmlns:set="http://www.sitecore.net/xmlconfig/set/" xmlns:role="http://www.sitecore.net/xmlconfig/role/">
        <sitecore>
            <databases>
                <database id="web">
                    <cacheSizes role:require="ContentDelivery or Standalone">
                        <data>1000MB</data>
                        <items>1000MB</items>
                    </cacheSizes>
                </database>
                <database id="master">
                    <cacheSizes role:require="ContentManagement or Standalone">
                        <data>1000MB</data>
                        <items>1000MB</items>
                    </cacheSizes>
                </database>
            </databases>
        </sitecore>
    </configuration>
  3. Deploy your configuration file to the <root>/App_Config/Includes folder. You can check your changes by visiting /sitecore/admin/showconfig.aspx and searching for patch:source="custom.caching.config".
