Need to purge individual mp4 files from MediaCache

Detailed description of work request:

We currently have multiple edge MediaCache servers. Once we serve a corrupted mp4 file on IIS origin it is cached onto all MediaCache servers. Only solution is to restart ALL MediaCache services to purge all cache. We need solution that we can simply specify that single mp4 file and purge it from all media cache servers.

Operating System in use: Windows 2012 R2 Standard

Additional Software/Network/Integration requirements

We are using IIS origin. Preferred written to work with IIS. If not, PHP or Ruby will work.

Timescales/Delivery date

To start asap.


1 days of work.


I already worked on this problematic (purging MediaCache for certain asset)
