NCache 3.6.2 Service Pack 1 (SP1) contains important fixes and enhancements that have been reported by customers. It is a recommended upgrade for all users of NCache. Those using NCache 3.6.x version can upgrade without re-building/re-compiling the application.
Following are some enhancements made in this release:
To overcome socket breaking issues within cluster nodes, NCache has a new connection retry logic which is configurable in config.ncconf in cluster configuration.
In case a socket breaks due to Network problems, NCache will try to re-establish the connection after every connection-retry-interval as many times as connectionretries. This requires a restart of NCache service after update.
NCache client side counters are introduced to detect and debug client side issues. These counters appear in Windows perfmon counters in category ‘NCache Client’.
NCache autostart feature is enhanced and starting up of various user specified caches with NCache service start up, is made asynchronous. If some caches are corrupt and are not started, a warning is logged but NCache service starts up normally.
Client cache sync mode description is added in NCache Help.
Description about setting up cluster memory, its usage and estimation is added in cluster configurations.
NCache installation wizard warns the user who is not an admin. Administrative privileges and permissions are required for the user to install NCache on a system.
