redis memory usage increasing (nodebb + mongodb & redis).

  • @barisThanks for the reply.

    Nothing else should be using redis on the server. Apart from nodebb we just have a wordpress site on it, and service up static content from nginx.

    Here's the full redis info

  • @baris Sorry, didn't reply/tag you correctly - but can't edit post due to the akismet spam filter flagging it on edit (I have noticed this issue with the spam plugin on retropie also when editing posts - even as an admin editing a users post - but that's another issue).

  • NodeBB

    Yeah looks like something is up with the sessions I don't suppose you have that much traffic to have 5.8m session keys

  • NodeBB

  • @baris Thanks for the fix! 🙂

  • NodeBB

    We are writing an upgrade script to delete all sessions on the next version so the memory usage should go down once that is released.

  • @baris Doing the update now. It's taking a long time to delete all the sessions. Can I just clear the redis cache completely in my set-up without breaking anything or use redis commandline to just clear the sessions ?


  • I decided to clear the redis cache completely as I don't think it's going to complete anytime soon otherwise (I assume this is ok, since using mongodb backend).

  • NodeBB

    If you are only using redis for cache yes you can just flush it.
