Today I read a very interesting blog post about the QlikView Cache by Qlik’s Henric Cronström (HIC). In the post, Henric gives a high level overview of how caching is used within QlikView to speed up front-end response times. (for a more in-depth explanation, have a look at the patent) Henric also explains some interesting peculiarities about caching, one of which busts a myth that I hear repeated very often (“running macros clears the cache”). I highly encourage you to read Henric’s post.
Of course, this post isn’t just a me-too article. Rather, I want to show you a neat thing that will let you experience the power of caching in QlikView for yourself. Did you know that you can actually turn off caching?
