The following Perl example illustrates how to invoke the System.Cache.clearWebCache() method to clear the content cache on the local Stingray Traffic Manager or Load Balancer.

  1. #!/usr/bin/perl -w

  2. use SOAP::Lite0.60;

  3. # This is the url of the ZXTM admin server - CHANGE THIS

  4. my $admin_server ='https://adminSmiley Tongueassword@zxtmhost:9090';

  5. my $conn = SOAP::Lite

  6.   -> ns('')

  7.   -> proxy("$admin_server/soap")

  8.   -> on_fault(sub{

  9.       my( $conn, $res )=@_;

  10.       dieref $res ? $res->faultstring : $conn->transport->status;});

  11. $conn->clearWebCache();

Hi Emarcus,


Gr8 stuff. Could you please guide how we could clear a specific cached object using the zeus api. Suppose I have a cached copy & and I want to use script to flush cache whenever I modify my content by passing the modified content name in a file.

Hi Ranjan,


Sorry for the late reply.  Looking through the Stingray Control API documentation found here:


There is clearMatchingCacheContent (protocol, host_wildcard, path_wildcard), so try something like:


clearMatchingCacheContent('http', "", "static/image.gif");

clearMatchingCacheContent('https', "", "static/image.gif");




clearMatchingCacheContent('both', "", "static/image.gif);


To cover both http and https.  Hope this helps.
