Workstation

General Notes

Warning

Important

Please note that Cache is still in Beta. Flaws in authentication, security and data loss are possible.

We recommend using Nucleus Cache for evaluation purposes and on premises only at this time.

As we move towards release, we will update this notice.

As per EULA, no cloud services to 3rd parties are allowed at this time.

System Requirements

Omniverse Cache is a basic HTTP daemon and it’s resourcing should be based on expected load.

General considerations:

  • CPU: enough to cover basic networking needs. Cache doesn’t do any CPU intensive work

  • RAM: cache itself uses minimal amounts of RAM. Filesystem cache is a consideration of course. Use your judgement, and monitor

  • Disk type and size: depends on bandwidth served. Ideally, should be balanced with network speeds and RAM size (slower disk should probably mean more RAM to have a bigger filesystem cache)

Install Cache with Launcher

Omniverse Cache for Workstation can be downloaded through Omniverse Launcher.

It can be found and downloaded in the ‘Exchange’ tab. To simplify the process, enter cache in the search bar.

Standalone Installer

Please visit the NVIDIA Omniverse Early Access Program to apply to join.

After access has been granted, download the Omniverse Cache Installer.

Run the installer to install Cache. To verify installation, connect to System Monitor by opening http://localhost:3080/ in a web browser and verify that Cache is listed as ‘Running’.
