One of our production dababase server (windows server 2012 DataCenter, SQL 2012 Sp2 RTW) has several cache files at the following path:
They take up large space, and are actively growing.
What process is responsible for this? The server is not a DNS server and has rare web access. It has windows Failover Cluster feature turn on (but not functioning?). The SQL server service is running under this AD account.
I am pretty sure they are not critical to db operation and could be deleted. But I want to get to the root cause and want to turn them off.
Any idea and suggestion?
