Asynchronous Cache

Often in Magento strores, products, categories, and sets of attributes are saving in the admin panel very slowly. This may be due to the fact that finding and deleting the cache files of these items requires a lot of time.

The plugin solves this problem by cleaning the cache in the background mode, which can significantly speed up the work in the backend of the store.


Each time the catalog items (products, categories, sets of attributes) are saved, Magento searches and deletes the cache files associated with a saved item. When the size of the catalogue is small, these operations are relatively fast. However, when increasing the number of items, the number of cache files increases significantly and the searching time for the cache files to be deleted can be up to 30 seconds.

This is especially noticeable if the server of your store has a slow hard drive. As a result, the work with the admin panel becomes very uncomfortable. Before proceeding to the next step, you need to wait until the data of the catalog will be saved and the cache will be cleaned.

How does the module work?

After the shop manager adds the new product (category) or changes the existing product, the necessary requirement to clean the cache of the product or category is saved in the queue table. The product is saved quickly and the manager proceeds to editing the new product.

Simultaneously, the background crown process is working, which reviews the queue table continuously. When the new tasks appear, it treats them consequently and cleans the cache.

Thus, even if the catalog is very large, with which several managers working simultaneously, they will not wait until the cache is cleaned after each saving. They will work and the cron process will clean the cache in the background mode.

This module can work successfully together with the module Fast Asynchronous Reindex. Although they have the similar principle of operation, each of them is responsible for its own field.
