Configuring Client Side Disk Cache Location

By default, the cache folder to maintain a local cache for deduplicated data is created in the Job Results directory. However, you can set the CacheDBRootFolder additional setting to configure a different location to maintain a local cache for the deduplicated data.

Procedure

  • To the MediaAgent that is used for auxiliary copy operations or to the client computer that is used for backup operations, add the CacheDBRootFolder additional setting as shown in the following table.

    For instructions about adding additional settings from the CommCell Console, see Adding or Modifying Additional Settings from the CommCell Console.

    Property

    Value

    Name

    CacheDBRootFolder

    Type

    String

    Value

    directory

    where directory is the location where you want to maintain a local cache for the deduplicated data

Result

A local cache for the deduplicated data is created in the directory that you specified.

After you run backup operations or auxiliary copy operations, new references for the deduplicated data are added in the new local cache. However, if you want to use the existing references of the deduplicated data, then you must manually copy the CV_CLDB folders from the Job Results directory to the new local cache.

Note: After you add the CacheDBRootFolder additional setting, if it is subsequently disabled or deleted, then the system uses the default location under the Job Results directory to maintain a local cache for the deduplicated data.
