Monitor with NCache Monitor Custom Dashboard
You can add a custom dashboard to place the counters for monitoring according to your own requirement.
- Please make sure that the time of your server machine and the machine where NCache Web Mnager is running is synced with the World Clock Time.
- Make sure NCache Service is started. If it is not started, do the following:
In PowerShell, enter the following command:
Start-Service -Name NCacheSvc
For .NET Core, make sure that you run NCache service as an administrator. Here are the steps to do so:
- Open Services window and look for NCache in the list.
- Right click on NCacheSvc from the list and choose Properties.
- Go to the Log On tab and click on the Browse button.
- In the object name field, type Administrator and click on the Check Names button.
- It will pick the appropriate Administrator, then click OK.
- Now, set a Password and click OK.
- Right click on the NCache service and choose the Restart option. Now your service will start running as administrator.
In order to monitor cache counters in custom dashboard, follow the steps below:
