Managing the database cache

You can manage the database cache using server commands and NOTES.INI settings.

About this task

You can use the server commands Dbcache Show to display databases in the cache, Dbcache Flush to close databases so that they are not open in the cache, and DBcache Disable to disable the cache (temporarily). For more information, see the related topics on these commands.

You can also use NOTES.INI settings to change the number of databases the cache holds (for example, if after monitoring you determine you should increase the number), or to change the time a database entry remains in the cache (for example, to discard entries for inactive databases).

Note: Using a NOTES.INI setting to disable the database cache, as opposed to using the server command, is not recommended.
