You can subscribe individual dossiers to cache updates, which will ensure that the dossier is always loaded with the latest information in Library and Library Mobile, without needing to establish a new cache.
This subscription is particularly useful for event-based schedules, where the data is updated frequently. By subscribing to cache updates, you can ensure that you always have access to the most current and accurate data, without the need to re-execute queries against the data warehouse or establish new caches
Subscriptions for Cache Updates
Subscribing to cache updates can be an effective way to ensure that you always have access to the latest data without having to re-execute requests against the data warehouse. When you subscribe to cache updates, the cache for the selected dossier is reloaded with the latest version of the data.
This can be particularly useful for high-volume requests such as weekly and monthly dossiers, which are pre-calculated and pre-processed and stored in memory and on disk. By caching these files, you can reduce the need for repetitive queries against the data warehouse, improving performance and reducing network traffic.
However, it is important to keep in mind that caches can become stale if they are not updated regularly. For example, if there are database tables that are updated once a week or once a month, it is important to clear the relevant caches whenever these tables are modified. This ensures that users always have access to the latest data, while minimizing the need to re-execute requests against the data warehouse.
In addition to cache updates, some software or applications may offer subscription plans that include regular updates or maintenance. These plans may include cache updates as well as other features such as bug fixes, security updates, and technical support. If you frequently access and work with cached data, it may be beneficial to consider subscribing to a maintenance plan to ensure that you are always working with the latest and most accurate data.

To sum up, updating a dossier cache involves replacing the existing cached copy with the updated version. The exact steps to update a dossier cache may vary depending on the software or application you are using.
However, the general steps are to locate the cache file, delete the existing cache file, replace it with the updated version, and restart the application. It is important to keep in mind that updating a dossier cache may cause temporary performance issues, so it is recommended to perform the update during a period of low usage or outside of business hours.
