Once you have installed NCache and the service is running, you can proceed to create caches and clusters to begin caching.
Select File ->New ->Clustered Cache option.
New Clustered cache wizard will open. Specify the name of the cache, select Data Format and click Next.
Cache with the specified name should not exist on the server; otherwise you get an error message that this cache already exists on this server.
In Select caching topology dialog, select the required cache topology. You can also change the Operation timeout (sec.) and Statistic replication interval (sec.) under the Advanced cluster options.
Specify the desired information and click Next.
If you selected the Partition Replica Cache topology, you have to select a Replication Strategy, either Asynchronous or Synchronous.
Specify the node IP address in text box or select from the Network Neighborhood and click on the > button to add it in the Selected Nodes list.
Click Next once all the required nodes are added.
Change the Cluster Port if required.
In the next dialog, you can change the cache size if required.
In Advanced options dialog, you can configure the following settings:
You can change the eviction policy. The eviction policy will be configured and can be turned on.
You can also change the eviction percentage; items will be evicted from the cache using this percentage value if eviction is enabled.
You can change the clean interval value. Default is 15 seconds.
This cache can be started automatically upon the completion of this process if you have checked the Start this cache on Finish checkbox on this dialog.
You can make the cache to start automatically after service restart by checking the checkbox Auto start this cache on service startup.
Click Finish. Created cache will appear in Cache Explorer under Clustered Caches section.
Using Windows PowerShell
New-Cache cmdlet enables the user to create a new cache on one or more server nodes.
This Command creates demoLocalCache of local topology of size 1024MB on node 220.127.116.11.
New-Cache demoLocalCache -Server 18.104.22.168 -Size 1024
The following command creates a new cache named demoLocalCache on server '22.214.171.124' having the size of 1024 MB, uses local topology since no topology is specified by the user and the configuration existing on the specified path.
New-Cache -Name demoLocalCache -Server 126.96.36.199 –Path C:\config.xml
