Applies to: SQL Server (SQL Server 2008 through current version).
Use DBCC DROPCLEANBUFFERS to test queries with a cold buffer cache without shutting down and restarting the server.
To drop clean buffers from the buffer pool, first use CHECKPOINT to produce a cold buffer cache. This forces all dirty pages for the current database to be written to disk and cleans the buffers. After you do this, you can issue DBCC DROPCLEANBUFFERS command to remove all buffers from the buffer pool.
DBCC DROPCLEANBUFFERS returns:
DBCC execution completed. If DBCC printed error messages, contact your system administrator.
