The probe cache is used by the probe for storing installers for various SolarWinds N-central features, including new versions of the agent, the metadata files used by the agents, and monitoring data. The probe cache does not store patch updates. You can configure a probe cache when you add a probe. If you didn't, you can do so later.
- Click Administration > Probes.
- Click the check box for the probe to enable the cache on.
- Click Patch Caching > Enable.
- Set the Maximum Patch Cache Size. If you have a large environment or have many roaming devices, increase the cache size to 60 GB.
- Set the Cache Location.
- Click Enable.
If you want to enable caches on multiple probes, select all the probes to enable.
For more information on probe caching, see Configure probe cache for monitoring data.
