Scheduled Job Properties - Rebuild Stale Cache

Clicking the edit icon for a job in Site, Server, or Customer Scheduled Jobs or clicking Next in the process of adding the Rebuild Stale Cache scheduled job displays properties for this job.

The CommonSpot Rebuild Stale Cache job ships as a server-level utility as shown here, for detecting and regenerating recently viewed expired content on target servers. CommonSpot updates oldest stale cache first. Use this dialog to view or change job name, the server location for running the job, and job attributes.


Name: The visible name of the scheduled job.

Server: The server(s) on which the scheduled job will run. Note that this option only shows a selection list when running under a Shared Database configuration; otherwise, the current server is automatically pre-selected and displayed as shown above. You must separately add server-level jobs on replication targets.

Properties: This job takes a Maximum number of threads argument for assigning system resources.


For non-Cache Servers, this value defaults to 1 - CommonSpot rebuilds stale cache for no more than one site at any given time.


For Cache Servers, the recommendation for Number of Threads is two times the number of processors. For example, a quad-core server can process stale cache for up to 8 sites simultaneously (or update up to 8 pages simultaneously.

Click Next to schedule this job, Prev to return to the preceding dialog, or Cancel to exit.
