Garbage Collection

Garbage Collection and Cache Eviction

Apollo Client 3 enables you to selectively remove cached data that is no longer useful. The default garbage collection strategy of the gc method is suitable for most applications, but the evict method provides more fine-grained control for applications that require it.


You call these methods directly on the InMemoryCache object, not on the ApolloClient object.

Please read the “Garbage collection and cache eviction” chapter on Apollo Client documentation.
