Cache Policy UI Updates for Smart Cache Ver 4.7.1


Product:  Smart Cache ver 4.7.1 Release Date: Sep 27th, 2023

Show Cache Policy Tab and Allow Detach/Attach Capability for the Cache Policy

Cache tab, under Smart Cache policies option under WebUI device settings, is now displayed, which was earlier hidden. The purpose of the cache tab shown again is to provide capability to detach/attach the existing system policy “Automatically purge uploaded files” to an Smart Cache device. 

By default, if the Smart Cache device is configured during setup for data collection use-case in SMB mode, then this system created cache policy “Automatically purge uploaded files” will be attached to the device as shown in the below screenshot.

If a Smart Cache device is configured for Revit and Civil 3D use-case in SMB mode, then the same system created cache policy will be in a detached state for the device as shown in below screenshot.

The table below describes the system created cache policy “Automatically purge uploaded files” enabled/disabled states based on the different modes of Smart Cache Configuration Setup.

Changing the default behavior of the system caching policy from enabled to disable or vice-versa is going to seriously affect the automatic purging functionality of uploaded files. Please choose it wisely based on the use-case requirements.

Cache Warming: Warning Recommended Message Added on Top of the Folder Selection

Cache warming configuration settings, when invoked, now come with a recommended warning message to caution end users that if the same folder name, which was already selected in Folder Synchronization (aka remote folders), UI should not be selected in the Cache warming folder selection criteria. It leads to double storage space consumption and the desired functionality might get affected. Below is the screenshot of the warming message.
