To flush the object cache or the disk-based cache

  1. On the Site Actions menu, point to Site Settings, and then click Modify All Site Settings.

    NoteNote:

    If you do not see additional items when you point to Site Settings, click Site Settings.

  2. If you are not at the root of your site, under Site Collection Administration, click Go to top level site settings.

  3. Under Site Collection Administration, click Site collection object cache.

  4. In the Object Cache Reset section, do one or more of the following:

    • To force the current server to flush its object cache, select the Object Cache Flush check box.

    • To force all servers in the farm to flush their object caches, select the Force all servers in the farm to flush their object caches check box.

    When you select one or more of the check boxes, all entries in object caches will be flushed immediately when you click OK. If you do not select any of the check boxes, caches will manage the expiration of items based on when they time out or are changed in the site.

  5. In the Disk Based Cache Reset section, do one or more of the following:

    • To force the server to reset its disk-based cache, click the Force this server to reset its disk based cache check box.

    • To force all servers to reset their disk-based caches, click the Force all servers in the farm to reset their disk based cache check box.

    If you select one or more of the check boxes, all entries in the disk caches will be flushed immediately when you click OK. If you do not select any of the check boxes, the disk caches will be left as-is and expiration of the items will be managed with items being removed as they are changed in the site or the disk size is exceeded.
