proasp_howto thread: caching question

Message #1 by Floyd Hunag <flloid@p...> on Mon, 19 Feb 2001 19:05:54 +0800
If all or most of your visitors need this data, and you'd otherwise have to 
retrieve it form a database or I file, I'd certainly cache that data. 24K 
is not that much at all. I don't know what the upper limit for caching is 
(if there is one), but I once read an article about backstage at 
http://msdn.microsoft.com They described a method and a COM object to store 
a lot of data in the application state with a Lookup table object.

Although you may not want to use the Lookup-table object as it isn't very 
flexible, the links below may give you some ideas on what to cache and how.

General start:

Lookup-table object
