    Hi @Subramaniyam, Umesh (Cognizant)

    The BLOB cache is enabled on a front-end web server and improves performance by retrieving BLOB files from the database and storing them in a directory on the front-end web end server where they are served to users.

    Commonly, blob cache works on WFE server. Could you provide relevant screenshots about the blob cache occupying 90GB of APP server?

    For more information, you could refer to:

    Hello @Yi Lu_MSFT

    thank you replying

    I missed to inform current all the APP and WFE server is added to load balancer to handle the traffic

    We also also compared the web.config file, blob cache settings and file type are identical

    If I flush the blob cahce will it help to release from the servers which have maximum space consumption
