RedEye DMS uses an in-memory cache service to optimise various parts of the website’s performance. Specific queries identified in the system were failing to set a TTL on the cache key. As such, they were not expiring from the cache after an elapsed period of time leaving it replete and unable to store new information.
Mitigation strategies to prevent this being a problem in the future include better monitoring of cache services and preventing a full cache from being able to cause an interruption in service.
