ODBC Driver for Azure Data Management

Automatically Caching Data

Automatically caching data is useful when you do not want to rebuild the cache for each query. When you query data for the first time, the driver automatically initializes and builds a cache in the background. When AutoCache = true, the driver uses the cache for subsequent query executions, resulting in faster response times.

Configuring Automatic Caching

Caching the Subscriptions Table

The following example caches the Subscriptions table in the file specified by the CacheLocation property of the connection string.

SELECT DisplayName, AuthorizationSource FROM Subscriptions WHERE SubscriptionId = 'fadc4-4cdaf-fadc4-4cdaf'

SQLTCHAR connectString[1024];
SQLSMALLINT cbconnectString;
SQLDriverConnect(hdbc, 0, (SQLTCHAR*)"DSN=CData AzureDataManagement Source;AutoCache=true;Cache Location=C:\\cache.db", SQL_NTS, connectString, 1024, &cbconnectString, SQL_DRIVER_COMPLETE);
SQLAllocHandle(SQL_HANDLE_STMT, hdbc, &hstmt);
SQLExecDirect(hstmt, (SQLCHAR*)"SELECT DisplayName, AuthorizationSource FROM Subscriptions WHERE SubscriptionId = 'fadc4-4cdaf-fadc4-4cdaf'", SQL_NTS);
while(SQLFetch(hstmt) == SQL_SUCCESS) {}
SQLFreeHandle(SQL_HANDLE_STMT, hstmt);

Common Use Case

A common use for automatically caching data is to improve driver performance when making repeated requests to a live data source, such as building a report or creating a visualization. With auto caching enabled, repeated requests to the same data may be executed in a short period of time, but within an allowable tolerance (CacheTolerance) of what is considered "live" data.
