Delete Globe Server Cache (Server)
Deletes an existing globe service cache and all tiles in it.
This is an unrecoverable operation so only use it if you are sure you no longer need the cache.
This tool can be used to delete an existing globe server cache. To delete a cache, specify the ArcGIS Server (host) machine and select the globe service. The layers list will be populated with all available layers in the selected service.
By default all layers of the service are displayed and selected. If you intend to delete only a particular layer's cache, make sure to unselect the ones for which you want to keep the cache.
Delete Globe Server Cache deletes the entire cache folder. Note that after the Delete Globe Server Cache tool runs, it will restart the service. This will, in turn, generate a new set of caches for each layer in the service that was deleted by the delete operation. This is because all globe services require a cache configuration to exist on disk. The cache that gets created automatically on startup of a service is a skeleton representation that does not contain any tiles.
The ArcGIS Server machine hosting the service whose cache will be deleted.
The name of the globe service whose cache will be deleted.
The layers in the globe service whose caches will be deleted. All layers of the service are included by default. If a layer is excluded the layer's cache will not be deleted.
This example deletes all layers of a cache for a service named tstGlobeService.
