SharePoint 2013 – Increase the Distributed Cache size

In order to improve performance I am increasing the cache size for the Distributed Cache Service using the Update-SPDistributedCacheSize cmdlet.  Here are the steps to do so:

1. Update the cache size:

Update-SPDistributedCacheSize -CacheSizeInMB 2048

2. Stop the service gracefully:

Stop-SPDistributedCacheServiceInstance -Graceful

3. Start the service in Central Administration

4. Confirm the settings have applied:

Get-AFCacheHostConfiguration -ComputerName ComputerName -CachePort "22233"


Note: I understand that the cache size should not be configured beyond 16GB
