About

  • Purpose: Keeps track of data dependencies between tables – which queries update cached data in which tables from which sources
  • Used by :
  1. REDIRECT Template:l/vc/query
  • Refers to: cache_tables, cache_queries
  • Fields:
    • doWrite: TRUE = ID_Table is written to (i.e. TARGET table); otherwise it is only read from (SOURCE).
  • Notes:
    • If it turns out that some tables are both read and written, then we might want a doRead field as well.
  • History:
    • 2010-11-09 Renamed data_flow -> cache_flow; ID_Proc -> ID_Query
    • 2010-11-13 Significant revision: ID_Srce/ID_Dest replaced by ID_Table/doWrite
