Dashboards and Cache Reloading to get the dashboards to show the most recent data
A topic that comes up often is how the dashboards used by CAST are updated to reflect current data from the most recent analysis.
Restarting the web application server hosting the dashboard (usually Tomcat) can cause this to be resolved, but there is also the ability to reload the cache used by the browser so that new data is shown on the HD and ED dashboards without the need for restarting the web application server.
Some things to keep in mind:
- The cache reload is only automatically done in the case of using the AIP Console with an embedded dashboard. In all other cases, it must be done manually or programmatically.
- The cache reload may take some time if the dashboards are hosting a large amount of applications.
- Make sure you are using the latest version of the embedded dashboard or standalone dashboard, as there are some issues which have been fixed in later versions.
For more information on the cache reload command as well as how to execute and automate it, please see the following documentation page:
