Hello. I was contacted by my host that they noticed a huge number of files/directories in the cache folder - around 600.000 of them, in the var/cache/registry folder

Why does it grow so big? Can this be avoided in any way?

Many variables control this including number of languages installed on your system, number of product filters you use, number of categories, etc. But 600K sounds a bit much. Contact the helpdesk and get them to take a look. Shouldn't cost anything unless it's a 3rd party addon causing the issue.
