    Found thousands and thousands of rows with the different variant names of ‘wpseo_sitemap_2573_cache_validators’ in the wp_options table with autoload set to yes. The site load time seems to have been effected by this. Any insight on why this is getting added, if it’s supposed to be purged, or if it’s safe to delete would be much appreciated.

    Those are validators which Yoast SEO uses for sitemap caching. You are wrong because autoload=no (see your image) and default value is no (I didn’t notice different value). So, they aren’t loaded at each page and performance isn’t affected (but it’s good to reduce options table).

    You can remove all cache validators + transients (related to sitemaps). It’ll refresh all sitemaps at next request.

    I have set it the autoload to no prior to taking the image. They were all set to yes prior. I really appreciate your input and will take your suggestion to remove all cache validators + transients.

    Thanks!

    You are welcome. It’s weird that where autoload=yes. I’m maintaining a lot of websites and I didn’t notice this behaviour. You should monitor it in next days. Maybe some plugin is altering autoload.
