Best Practice for restarting Collectors

Good day

In dynaTrace 6.2, Is it Best Practice to still clear the class cache and restart Collectors before the Agents/Applications are restarted? From what I understand, the collector now (I think since 6.1) has the ability to manage the class cache itself and that clearing the cache might actually deteriorate the performance?

Hi Anton,

From the Collector documentation [1]:

To answer if the Collector has the ability to manage the class cache itself: "To prevent the class cache from growing too large, the Collector performs a daily cleanup task. Classes that are not used for a week are purged from the cache."

To answer if you should manually clear the class cache: "Clear a cache manually only when your class cache is corrupted and you must clear it immediately"
