How to Remove Files From The File Cache Immediately After Indexing (with Automatic Indexing Update Cycle) (Doc ID 1064293.1)

Last updated on MAY 22, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Content - Version 10.0 to [Release 10gR3 to 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Automatic Index Updates will generate files holding the content to be indexed in the file cache (weblayout or vault location) for document content that's stored inside the database using a FileStoreProvider.

These temporary files will be removed from the cache after 7 days, which is the default value for the FsMinimumFileCacheAge as explained in the File Store Provider Admin Guide at: - 10g link - 11g link 

One can decrease the FsMinimumFileCacheAge to a lower value (e.g. 1 day), but this may still cause the filesystem to fill up with temporary files for all content that was indexed in the last 24 hours.

This note tells you how to instruct Content Server to delete the cached files immediately after indexing so that the file cache size is kept to a minimum.
