Issue/Introduction

You can clear the object cache and the byte cache in the Management Console (Maintenance > Tasks), in the Cache and Statistics Tasks section.

Clearing the byte cacheClearing the object cache

  • deletes cached content
  • does not interrupt current connections
  • clears and regenerates core and edge index dictionaries¬†

  • sets all objects in the cache to expired
  • does not remove expired objects from memory or disk immediately, but a subsequent request for an object is retrieved from the source before it is served
  • clears all objects cached by the appliance, including HTTP and all object files such as JPG and GIF caches
