Description

The Add-BCDataCacheExtension cmdlet adds a data cache file to increase the amount of cache storage space that is available on a hosted cache server. Data cache files can be spread across multiple disks to maximize performance.

Examples

Example 1: Create a default cache extension

PS C:\> Add-BCDataCacheExtension

This command creates a data cache extension in the default location reserving five percent of the drive.

Example 2: Create a cache extension

PS C:\> Add-BCDataCacheExtension -Path "C:\datacache" -Percentage 10

This command adds a data cache extension in the C:\datacache directory reserving ten percent of C:.

Required Parameters

-SizeBytes

Specifies the size of the cache file in bytes.

Type:UInt64
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet.

For more information about Windows PowerShell background jobs, see about_Jobs.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-CimSession

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

Type:CimSession[]
Aliases:Session
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type:SwitchParameter

-Force

Forces the command to run without asking for user confirmation.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named

Type:UInt32
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ThrottleLimit

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShellĀ® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

Type:Int32
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
