MageCloudKit includes modules for creating both Redis & Memcached Elasticache clusters. Customers may wish to use one explicitly or a combination of the two. For example you may wish to use Memcached for storing User sessions with the locking functionality and Redis to store the Magento cache.
We recommend installing the phpredis library in your
Dockerfile for better performance.
You can use the following command from one of the App Servers:
$ echo 'flush_all' | nc memcached.us-west-1.magecloudkit.internal 11211
If you’re using PHP’s Memcached extension, you can set the
off to avoid session locks. The default value is
on, which makes it act like the normal session handler.
