Epic #83652: EXT: Redirects module - Umbrella issue
EXT:redirect Add limitations to documentation
thank you for EXT:redirect. It looks pretty good.
As you retrieve ALL valid redirects from CachingFramework, which is configured to use MySQL DB, you have a limitation in column "content", which is configured to mediumblob. This column can save up to 16MB.
A little calculation:
16MB * 1024 * 1024 / 258 (Bytes per record) = ~65.000 redirect records
I'm nearly sure, that nobody will have such a mass of redirect records, but I think we should document that limitation for users. It should also be documented how to solve that problem by configuring CF to use f.e. SimpleFileBackend

I'm pretty certain that many installations will have much more redirects.
Please take into account that in the longer run we will store not only manually created redirects, but also automatically generated ones.
E.g. when page title or news title changes, new url is generated and a redirect is created.
I saw installations with realurl tables with millions rows => the same will happen here.
