Populating the Cache

Important: If DATABridge Clients are tracking only filtered sources, then only cached audit files from local (filtered) sources will be deleted (in accordance to the value set for Remove cache files when read n times). Since cache files for base sources aren't being tracked, they won't be removed and may require manual removal.

Use this procedure to initially populate Enterprise Server with local cache audit files from base or local sources after you have specified a cache directory in the Base Source Properties.

To populate the cache from the DATABridge Enterprise window

  • In the right pane of the DATABridge Enterprise window, right-click the base source, and select Start caching updates.

To populate the cache from a command line

  1. Open a command prompt window, navigate to the Enterprise Server directory, and then enter the following:

    DBEnterprise cache basesource

  2. If your audit file wait options time out, run the Enterprise Server cache command in step 1 again. If an error occurs, consult the Cacher(basesourcename) dateandtime.log file. Log file locations are explained in Log Files.

When you populate the cache, Enterprise Server writes a copy of all updates from DMSII audit files for the base source to the basesourcename subdirectory of the specified parent directory.

The next run of the cache command starts reading DMSII audit files from the number specified in the Enterprise Server LastAFN.txt file in the cache subdirectory.
