Configure Data Cache Settings

This section explains on how to configure the Data cache settings to improve dashboard performance by caching widget data during the interactions in a dashboard in the Bold BI.

The Data Cache allows you to improve the dashboard performance by caching the result of each widget and keeping the cached data in a dashboard for a particular amount of time.

NOTE: This feature is available in Bold BI Embedded Analytics but not in Cloud Analytics Server.

Mode selection

The mode should be either in-memory or redis. The widget data will be cached based on the selected mode.

Cache configuration

  1. Go to the Data Process settings on the server page and select the Data Cache Configuration tab.

    The Data cache can be achieved through two modes:

    1. In-Memory
    2. Redis


    The In-Memory is the default cache memory for dashboards. It stores the data in the internal cache storage. You should configure the CacheMode property for the in-memory mode selection.


    The Data is cached in an external server named Redis. Redis is an open-source (BSD licensed), in-memory data structure store used as a database, cache, message broker, and streaming engine. Learn more about Redis and its installation here.
