sliding cache

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I am maintaining a cache entry for each logged-in user, and that entry is refreshed at each onauthenticated request via an httpmodule.

the cache entry is removed as soon as the users signs out. it's using sliding expiration.

my question is what would be the best combination of the following properties at the time of cache entry creation:

Cutting Edge: Implement Custom Cache Dependencies in ASP.NET 1.x


One of the most compelling improvements that ASP. NET brought to ASP programming was the Cache object. The Cache has some similarities to the Application object and is a container of global data (as opposed to session-specific data) that features a fair number of innovative characteristics.

Wicked Code: Supporting Database Cache Dependencies in ASP.NET


Developers love the ASP. NET application cache. One reason they love it is that ASP. NET lets them create dependencies between items placed in the cache and files in the file system. If a file targeted by a dependency changes, ASP.

How to clear cache


We have an ASP.NET-based print tool that will create a printable version of a webpage (as a PNG, I believe). The URL is something like:


which is displaying an older version of the webpage.

The URL to just the webpage displays the current version:


Observations so far:

  • I've deleted temporary Internet files on clients, which had no effect.
  • The behaviour is the same on different clients, which suggests a server issue.
  • I've requested that the temporary ASP.NET files are deleted from:
    C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\Temporary ASP.NET Files\mysite_tools_printfromweb
    (It's a customer's web server. I've checked the version of ASP.NET associated with the tool.)

So, my questions are:

Am I right in thinking this is probably a caching issue, and are there any other locations and/or settings I should be looking at?

With thanks.

Problem insert POCO to Velocity Cache



I want to put POCO object to Velocity cache. How can I serializable ICollection to Velocity cache, or exclude ICollection from serialization?

I got this exception

Type 'System.Collections.Generic.ICollection`1[Model.Collection]' cannot be serialized. Consider marking it with the DataContractAttribute attribute, and marking all of its members you want serialized with the DataMemberAttribute attribute.  If the type is a collection, consider marking it with the CollectionDataContractAttribute.  See the Microsoft .NET Framework documentation for other supported types.



output cache to be used only when parameter has changed + old question of user control not answered



i have 2 questions about output cache:

1.is it just me , or does it seems that it is used only after the second time that the user reaches the webpage? if so, why, and how can i tweak it to my needs? my guess is that it wouldn't be logical to cache every time a user reach a webpage, but only when it happens enough times.

2.i know that i can use "varybyparam" for using the output cache when the parameter doesn't change , but it seems that it would use the output cache even if there is no parameter , or if the specified paramter is not there. is there a way to overcome this?

3.an old question that somehow marked as "answered" , yet i didn't solve : suppose i created a user control and i gave it values through the CTOR via the aspx file . is it possible to show the values from within the split/design mode? remember that i've talking about ASP.NET and not simply C# winforms . i write this because this question was on :


and the answer that i got was for C# and winforms . i've tried to do the same for ASP.NET , but i've failed.

can anyone please help me?

ASP.NET Cache Problem ??

I'm having a problem with an asp.net 3.0 application using a gridview to display data.  The problem seems to be that despite a brand new .selectCommand being sent to the sqlDataSource, the gridview starts displaying data from *someone else's* query.  For example, user A is logged in and will be working fine until a few page submissions later when the gridview data starts suddenly showing information that belongs to another user.  This is my first asp.net application, though I've been working with classic asp and ADO for years so I'm used to sending a SQL string and getting back the results from that string.  Apparently there is a complex caching system which is interferring which I do not at all understand so at this point I just want to stop the server from caching any data whatsoever.  Is this possible? Any and all help will be much appreciated!!

Cache vs Static Class

Hi All, I am sure this question has been posted many times, but have not got time to wade through. Apologies in advance! I am working on a new web application which has extremely high volumes of traffic, the application uses two large(ish) data tables (approx 15,000 rows/records each - both fairly 'wide' tables....) which are each the result of various JOINS and other intensive operations. The post query operations are unavoidable and the data structure has been optimised wherever possible. I am debating on using the Cache and CacheDependancy classes to store these tables, but fear the 'eviction' process due to the demand in traffic and server resources generally. I can certainly afford to build these tables once, on the first request (near Application Start), but should memory become scarce, do not want the cached data to be recreated during the application lifecycle and have concerns about how ASP.NET will manage demands on this data in such a crisis. For example, if during a period of time, available memory is at an all time low, I would anticipate that the CacheDependancy would keep recreating the tables for each request. (I don't know...) Note: The Cache API is not used elsewhere and the Application and Session scopes are hardly used. At present, I am using just a static class to store the two tables which works a

TypePerf, Buffer Cache Hit Ratio, Page Life expectancy and some other counters....

Hello, I 've scheduled a Task on a Windows 2008 R2 Server (a Blade with 2 Processors (6 core HT) and 18 GB RAM) to check some SQL Server 2008 Performance Counters. The task runs TypePerf that checks the Counters every 15 seconds for 10 minutes. The task is scheduled every hour. The strange result is that Buffer Cache Hit Ratio, Page Life expectancy and some other Counters are ALWAYS = 0 but if I run PerfMon, Buffer Cache Hit Ratio is 100 and  Page Life expectancy >>>> 300. Any Idea? Thank youLuca Bovo MCTS - MCITP SQL Server 2005 (Database Administrator and Database Developer)

Server Cache Issue - .Net 2.0 / Oracle 11g / 2003 Server / IIS 6.0

Hi All,We are working on a web application developed in C#, nHibernate and with Oracle as back-end.WebServer and Database are on different machines.Application is more or less accessed by 500 users all the time.Recently we found that some of the controls within MultiView Tab contol were not working as expected. Basically, data is not getting saved.For instance, if there are 5 tabs and in the first tab if we change an option in the dropdownlist, in the autopostback event, the new value should get saved to database. If we navigate to another tab and visit the previous tab, the new option should remain there (reloading the data in the page_load, preRender events).But once we restart the IIS, all this functionality works as expected.Even if there is some database issue, like foreign key violation etc, application is behaving weirdly and once we fix the database issue, we still need to restart IIS to clear cache for the application to behave normally.I am not sure if any of you ever faced this issue but please let me know where to start analyzing this issue?Thanks in advance.ys

Report server cache vs RAM

Hello, When report server executes a huge report(or any small or big report), it consumes some amout of RAM available on the server box. Once the report is completely executed, does it releases the RAM that it used for report execution? Does RAM goes to the original level after complete report execution? When the report is cached, does this cache memory something different from the available RAM on the server box? If so, from where this cache memory comes from? Regards.
