App-V cache clean up RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm wondering if anybody knows how App-V cleans up software that are cached on a client's computer?  Does it have a scheduled cache dumping of streamed apps or does it just stay on the machine permanently?

    Here's an issue that I'm trying to solve is if I have a public computer that is used by random domain users whose receives different apps assigned to each.  Would the cache just keep on building till the drive gets full?

    Hope it will answer all of your questions.

  • And to answer here in the forums shortly:

    Yes, they remain permanently [not entirely true, see below] unless somebody manually deletes them from the client (no central facility within the App-V itself, sorry!).

    Cache keeps growing until it hits the maximum (either in size or amount of free disk space left), after which it actually starts to throw away packages from the oldest-used to make room for the new ones.

    So all in all, in your scenario your users would always have their application available but it might incur unnecessary re-streaming of the data back to the cache. The drive does not get full since you set the limit for the cache.
