Example 3 - Caching and Signalling from Sharing Data Between Callbacks page does not work as written

I’m trying to run example 3 exactly as posted here: https://dash.plotly.com/sharing-data-between-callbacks except for changing from redis to filesystem:

‘CACHE_TYPE’: ‘filesystem’,
‘CACHE_DIR’: os.getcwd()

When run from the terminal in IntelliJ IDEA I get the following error:

Exception in thread Thread-2:
Traceback (most recent call last):

Removing ‘processes=6’ from: app.run_server(debug=True, processes=6) fixes the issue. Is the only way to simulate parallel callbacks to run on a WSGI? Or has parallel behavior become a default setting in dash? Thanks for your help.
