Can you provide a little more details about what you are wanting to do? Are you speaking specifically about the "Cache Server" process or the cache settings on "configure Tableau Server" settings? Configure Data Connections or something else? What is the context of your question?
Thank you for your responce. My dashboards in the server takes a minute or two to refresh when I open them up. I was wondering if there is a way for them to Cache the data so when I open them there are ready to use with the most updated data.

There are a few things you can do to increase the performance of workbooks but you should first understand where the slowness is occurring: Is it network speed, database server speed, resources on the Tableau Server, workbook configuration, size of dataset, etc.
I would first suggest starting with a Performance Recording (Create a Performance Recording) and then analyze the performance of the workbook (http://onlinehelp.tableau.com/current/pro/desktop/en-us/help.htm#perf_record_create_desktop.html%3FTocPath%3DOptimize%25…). You can also check out this article to help optimize workbook performance: http://onlinehelp.tableau.com/current/pro/desktop/en-us/help.htm#performance_tips.html
However, from your description you are wanting to "warm" the cache (or pre-load it with data) and there isn't a native way of doing that with Tableau Server but there is a great discussion on that topic in this community forums thread: Subscription to populate the Cache ? and this article on Cache Warming: Report from the Field: A Sith’s Tableau Server... | Tableau Love as well as this blog post on making dashboards perform better: 6 Tips to Make Your Dashboards More Performant | Tableau Software
Thanks and hope this helps!
