I uploaded a new site (migrated) to a new server. 3 times now I've had my redis maxout memory. This causes my site to show an error 500. When I flush the redris the site goes back up immediately. I can't seem to find what is the issue though. Where would I start looking to address it

You should check your Redis server's eviction policy, which describes what Redis should do when it runs out of memory: https://docs.redis.com/latest/rs/databases/memory-performance/eviction-policy/

Most Redis servers use allkeys-lru by default, which means it will removes the least recently used (oldest) keys to free up memory for new ones.

    Thanks Brad, it was on volatile-lru. I'll see if this fixes it!
