About

  • Purpose: Log of all cache updates performed
  • Refers to: cache_queries
  • Notes:
    • The stored procedures don't automatically update this log; that is handled by the DataMgr classes.
  • History:
    • 2009-03-24 Belatedly realized that it makes no sense to log source and destination each time; running the procedure updates a preset destination (a given function always updates the same destination) from all the function's sources.
      • Also added VbzUser, SysUser, and Machine, while I'm here (to be consistent with
  1. REDIRECT Template:l/vc/table). Sure, some updates are automatic, but some aren't.
    • 2009-03-25 "VbzUser" makes this subsystem too interdependent with VbzCart, so reducing to just one user field (Username). The system initiating the cache update may prefix the username with a qualifier (e.g. "vbz:", "wiki:", "sys:", or whatever seems appropriate; it's for human consumption and doesn't need to match a key anywhere else).
    • 2010-11-09 Updating SQL before renaming page
      • (table) "data_log" -> "cache_log"
      • (field) "ID_Proc" -> "ID_Query" (now using VIEWs instead of PROCs)
      • (field) "Username" -> "WhoAdmin" (consistency with event_log)
      • (field) Machine -> WhoNetwork" (consistency with event_log)
      • (field) added "WhoSystem" (consistency with event_log)
      • removed DROP TABLE line -- not a good idea if table might have data which doesn't get automatically replaced
