Set personal library cache directory

Personal Library Cache Directory (PLCD) provides faster access to repository files by removing network transfers when the same revision has been previously fetched to a work station.

PLCD makes a local copy in a cache directory of items downloaded from, and uploaded to, Dimensions CM. This speeds up transfers when fetching the same revision more than once, for example, fetching a baseline or a patch, or overwriting unwanted changes by restoring revisions.

For details, see Improve WAN performance.

To set the PLCD options:

  1. In the desktop client's menu bar, select Tools > Preferences.

  2. In the Preferences dialog box, select the Personal Library Cache tab.

  3. Verify that the Enable Personal Library Cache option is selected.

  4. In the Cache Directory Path field, enter the location of the cache folder on your local machine.

  5. In the Maximum Cache Size field, specify the size of the PLCD directory. When the folder reaches this size, earlier item revisions are deleted.

  6. Click OK.
