You should need to clear the cache only if you are creating new services or altering existing ones. For example if you are starting and stopping a service because you have altered the underlying MXD or MSD you would need to clear the cache for those changes to take effect. This needs to be done even for seemingly minor changes such as enabling or disabling ...
