Using Cache Notifications (Windows Server AppFabric Caching)

Windows Server AppFabric allows your cache-enabled application to receive cache notifications. This section contains topics that describe how to use cache notifications. For more information about cache notifications, see Cache Notifications (Windows Server AppFabric Caching).


Your application does not need to add cache notification callbacks if you want to use cache notifications only for local cache invalidation. For more information about how to enable notification-based local cache invalidation, see Enable Windows Server AppFabric Local Cache or Enable Windows Server AppFabric Local Cache (XML).

To use notifications you need to enable them on a named cache. Use the NotificationsEnabled parameter with the New-Cache or Set-CacheConfig commands. For more information, see Using Windows PowerShell to Manage Windows Server AppFabric Caching Features.
