An already registered cache can be removed in the following ways:
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 either Distributed Lucene or Distributed Cache with Persistence, 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.
