#45417 new enhancement

Lack of actions when wp_cache_flush is called

The function definition of wp_cache_flush doesn't have a do_action call, and neither does WP_Object_Cache->flush.

I want to be able to run additional code whenever the object cache is flushed but currently I can't.

Fixing this should be as trivial as adding


to the function definition of wp_cache_flush.

I don't care about the name of the action or if it runs before or after the flush, I'd just like to have this functionality in the core. Preferably before WordPress 6.0.

A challenge with this is that if an object-cache dropin is used, then the core wp-includes/cache.php file won't be loaded. Any hooks we decide to add would thus become impossible to rely upon.
