Stops an instance of the distributed cache service on a local server.
Use the Stop-SPDistributedCacheServiceInstance cmdlet to stop an instance of the distributed cache service on a local server.
Execution of this cmdlet moves cached items to another server to preserve them. If you stop the distributed service before you stop each instance, cached items are lost. To prevent cached items from being lost, use the Graceful parameter.
For more information about caching, see Manage the Distributed Cache service in SharePoint Server 2013 or Plan for feeds and the Distributed Cache service in SharePoint Server 2013.
SharePoint Management Shell
Specifies whether to gracefully stop an instance of the distributed cache service.
Manages objects for the purpose of proper disposal. Use of objects, such as SPWeb or SPSite, can use large amounts of memory and use of these objects in Windows PowerShell scripts requires proper memory management. Using the SPAssignment object, you can assign objects to a variable and dispose of the objects after they are needed to free up memory. When SPWeb, SPSite, or SPSiteAdministration objects are used, the objects are automatically disposed of if an assignment collection or the Global parameter is not used.
This example gracefully stops an instance of a distributed cache service on a local server.
