What’s New in 5.0 SP3
Along with significant performance optimizations, NCache 5.0 SP3 has several feature enhancements which will provide you with the in-memory speed and massive scalability capabilities that your business needs for its mission critical applications.
You can take advantage of the following new features with NCache 5.0 SP3:
Up to 4 licenses required for remote clients in NCache SaaS offering: NCache Remote Clients normally require at least 2 licenses per box. If a machine has more than 8 cores, it requires an additional license for every 4 cores. However, for NCache SaaS users, the licenses required for remote clients never exceed 4 even if the number of cores on that machine are more than 16.
New PowerShell Commands: Here are our new PowerShell commands added in SP3:
- Get-AllCacheLogs to retrieve a list of all cache logs for a given cache.
- Get-CacheLog to retrieve the complete log file for a given cache with the given cache name.
- Create-MemoryDump for the given cache or service.
- Get-AllMemoryDumps to print a list of all memory dumps taken with their sizes.
- Remove-MemoryDump to remove the given memory dump from the disk.
Enhancements in existing PowerShell Commands: Here are the new enhancements to existing PowerShell commands:
- Test-Stress, Get-CacheCount and Add-TestData optionally take “-Servers” parameter so that you don’t have to add clients in cache to use these tools.
- Export-CacheConfiguration command exports the config.ncconf of the given server completely if cache name is not specified.
