clearing large java cache from user profiles
Posted on 2008-10-27
We are running two Windows 2003 R2 sp2 servers as Terminal Servers for a call center. We are not using Terminal Server Profiles, but rather the regular profile settings in the Users Active Directory attributes. There are around 200 profiles. The company has a pretty easy Internet Use policy while people are between calls (picture people sitting around something like a firehouse waiting for the fire alarm to go off). As a result in each users profile in Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\ there are subfolders that are building up in size. It is clearly a result of large amounts of web browsing.
All of this leads to ever increasing log on times.
Changing the settings in the Java Control panel just seems to effect the user logged on so doing anything as administrator doesn't help. Does any one have a strategy for clearing this cache on logoff? Or, perhaps limiting the size of these subfolders?
