Telnet commands related to cache management

Applies to:
SAP NetWeaver CE 7.2 and higher.

AS Java implements centralized cache management infrastructure that consolidates caches used by various applications within the SAP system landscape. This infrastructure is provided by the Cache Management Library (CML).

The CACHE group of Telnet commands provides central monitoring and administration of all caches.
In order to have access to CACHE group commands, type "add CACHE".
To display the help information about the available commands you can type one of the following in the command line:

<command> -h

MAN <command>

Note that the configuration changes you make using the CACHE commands are not persisted - after system restart the changed cache configuration will be lost and the default one will be valid.
