Last Updated:

Applies to

  • Global File Cache (GFC)
  • Pre-Population Job


  • If at any point during a Pre-population job your Edge reboots, that active job will be terminated, It will NOT automatically restart. 
  • If the Job is configured as a "one time job", you will need to reconfigure a new job so it can complete. 
  • If you have configured it as re-occurring, you can expect the job to be picked up at its next scheduled time.

Additional Information

You can reboot your edge to terminate an active pre-population if need be. An example for doing so would be, a pre-population running during the middle of a work day and users are experiencing a perfomance impact.
