On one of our projects (Sitecore 8.2 initial) we see something weird in the /sitecore/admin/cache.aspx page:

enter image description here

As you can see the MaxSize value is a bit high. (Count, Size and Delta are not 0 everywhere btw, they seem normal). On other 8.2 projects we don't seem to have this issue. One difference that I can think of is that this project has a lot of sites (and their cache was not yet tuned).

Has anyone seen this before? Any ideas how to fix it?


This issue is related to the 'Caching.DisableCacheSizeLimits' setting in the web.config file. When set to true, Sitecore ignores any maximum cache sizes specified in the web.config file.

Please change the value to "false" like bellow :

<setting name="Caching.DisableCacheSizeLimits" value="false"/>

    If you enable cache size limits. you need to make sure that you allocated enough memory to each cache for good performance. If you have enough memory and a 64bit OS tho, just leave them disabled. – Richard Seal Feb 13 '17 at 14:38
