Database Caching

Optionally, users can cache objects in a remote database to a local file, allowing a quick retrieval of objects next time you connect to the database.

Enabling Catalog Cache Caching database catalogs is a very useful feature if you are connecting to a:

  • Large database with thousands of objects
  • A remote database with a slower network connection

  • Many features in WinSQL submit several SQL queries in the background to fetch metadata information related to tables, views and procedures. WinSQL saves this metadata to a local file when caching is enabled. The prevents several round trips to the database next time you connect to the same database.

    The following information is saved in a local cache.

  • Table names
  • Field names
  • Datatype information for fields
  • Primary/Foreign key information
  • View names
  • View fields
  • Stored procedure names
  • Stored procedure fields

  • WinSQL displays the word "CACHE" in the status bar of WinSQL when a catalog is loaded from the cache. The color of this word turns RED if the cache is over 15 days old, reminding you to refresh the catalog as it might have changed in the database. Cache Indicator
