ansible.builtin.memory – RAM backed, non persistent


This cache plugin is part of ansible-core and included in all Ansible installations. In most cases, you can use the short plugin name memory even without specifying the collections: keyword. However, we recommend you use the FQCN for easy linking to the plugin documentation and to avoid conflicting with other collections that may have the same cache plugin name.


  • RAM backed cache that is not persistent.
  • This is the default used if no other plugin is specified.
  • There are no options to configure.
