Cache recorded session files

Feb 02, 2015

Each time you open a recorded session file, the Session Recording Player downloads the file from the location where the recordings are stored. If you download the same files frequently, you can save download time by caching the files on your workstation. Cached files are stored on your workstation in this folder:

userprofile\AppData\Local\Citrix\SessionRecording\Player\Cache

You can specify how much disk space is used for the cache. When the recordings fill the specified disk space, Session Recording deletes the oldest, least used recordings to make room for new recordings. You can empty the cache at any time to free up disk space.

To enable caching

  1. Log on to the workstation where the Session Recording Player is installed.
  2. From the Start menu, choose Session Recording Player.
  3. From the Session Recording Player menu bar, choose Tools > Options > Cache.
  4. Select the Cache downloaded files on local machine check box.
  5. If you want to limit the amount of disk space used for caching, select the Limit amount of disk space to use check box and specify the number of megabytes to be used for cache.
  6. Click OK.

To empty cache

  1. Log on to the workstation where the Session Recording Player is installed.
  2. From the Start menu, choose Session Recording Player.
  3. From the Session Recording Player menu bar, choose Tools > Options > Cache.
  4. Select the Cache downloaded files on local machine check box.
  5. In the Session Recording Player, choose Tools > Options > Cache.
