Remove Existing Cache
NCache allows you to remove an existing cache. You can remove a cache without stopping any of the existing caches on this server.
An already registered cache can be removed using the following steps.
Using the NCache Management Center
Launch the NCache Management Center by browsing to http://localhost:8251 or
<server-ip>:8251on Windows and Linux.
In the left navigation bar, click on Local Caches or Clustered Caches based on the cache to be removed. This opens up a new page at
<server-ip>:8251/. The page shows any existing local or clustered caches and additional details like Server and Server Platform.
In the Caches window, check the box against the cache name to remove, and click Remove.
- You will be prompted to confirm if you want to unregister the cache as well. Clicking Yes will unregister the cache, clicking No will only remove the cache from the NCache Management Center view.
- In case the In-Memory Store Type of your cache is Distributed Lucene, you will also be prompted with the Do you also want to delete persisted data of selected caches? checkbox. Selecting this checkbox will also delete your persisted data along with your cache.
Using Command Line Tools
Remove-Cache cmdlet removes an already registered cache and also removes cache(s) on a specified server.
This command removes the cache demoClusteredCache from the local server.
Remove-Cache –Name demoClusteredCache -Server 188.8.131.52
The following command removes the cache demoClusteredCache along with its persisted data:
In case your cache has persisted data and you don't specify the
Force flag, you will be prompted with the message Do you want to remove the persisted data('y' or 'n')?. Pressing y will remove the persisted data and vice versa.
Remove-Cache -Name demoClusteredCache -Force
Verify Successful Cache Removal
In order to verify the successful removal of the cache, use Command Line Tools to run the Get-Caches command to get the list of the registered caches on the server. Successful removal of the cache will be verified if the cache list displayed does not contain the cache name.
