CDbCache implements a cache application component by storing cached data in a database.

CDbCache stores cache data in a DB table named cacheTableName. If the table does not exist, it will be automatically created. By setting autoCreateCacheTable to false, you can also manually create the DB table.

CDbCache relies on PDO to access database. By default, it will use a SQLite3 database under the application runtime directory. You can also specify connectionID so that it makes use of a DB application component to access database.

See CCache manual for common cache operations that are supported by CDbCache.

Property Details

autoCreateCacheTable property
public boolean $autoCreateCacheTable;

whether the cache DB table should be created automatically if it does not exist. Defaults to true. If you already have the table created, it is recommended you set this property to be false to improve performance.

See Also

cacheTableName property
public string $cacheTableName;

name of the DB table to store cache content. Defaults to 'YiiCache'. Note, if autoCreateCacheTable is false and you want to create the DB table manually by yourself, you need to make sure the DB table is of the following structure:

(id CHAR(128) PRIMARY KEY, expire INTEGER, value BLOB)
Note, some DBMS might not support BLOB type. In this case, replace 'BLOB' with a suitable binary data type (e.g. LONGBLOB in MySQL, BYTEA in PostgreSQL.)

connectionID property
public string $connectionID;

the ID of the CDbConnection application component. If not set, a SQLite3 database will be automatically created and used. The SQLite database file is protected/runtime/cache-YiiVersion.db.

dbConnection property read-only

the DB connection instance

gCProbability property (available since v1.0.9)
public integer getGCProbability()
public void setGCProbability(integer $value)

the probability (parts per million) that garbage collection (GC) should be performed when storing a piece of data in the cache. Defaults to 100, meaning 0.01% chance.

Method Details

__destruct() method
public void __destruct()

Destructor. Disconnect the db connection.

addValue() method
protected boolean addValue(string $key, string $value, integer $expire)
$key string the key identifying the value to be cached
$value string the value to be cached
$expire integer the number of seconds in which the cached value will expire. 0 means never expire.
{return} boolean true if the value is successfully stored into cache, false otherwise

Stores a value identified by a key into cache if the cache does not contain this key. This is the implementation of the method declared in the parent class.

createCacheTable() method
protected void createCacheTable(CDbConnection $db, string $tableName)
$db CDbConnection the database connection
$tableName string the name of the table to be created

Creates the cache DB table.

deleteValue() method
protected boolean deleteValue(string $key)
$key string the key of the value to be deleted
{return} boolean if no error happens during deletion

Deletes a value with the specified key from cache This is the implementation of the method declared in the parent class.

flush() method
public void flush()

Deletes all values from cache. Be careful of performing this operation if the cache is shared by multiple applications.

gc() method (available since v1.0.11)
protected void gc()

Removes the expired data values.

getDbConnection() method
protected CDbConnection getDbConnection()
{return} CDbConnection the DB connection instance

getGCProbability() method (available since v1.0.9)
public integer getGCProbability()
{return} integer the probability (parts per million) that garbage collection (GC) should be performed when storing a piece of data in the cache. Defaults to 100, meaning 0.01% chance.

getValue() method
protected string getValue(string $key)
$key string a unique key identifying the cached value
{return} string the value stored in cache, false if the value is not in the cache or expired.

Retrieves a value from cache with a specified key. This is the implementation of the method declared in the parent class.

getValues() method (available since v1.0.8)
protected array getValues(array $keys)
$keys array a list of keys identifying the cached values
{return} array a list of cached values indexed by the keys

Retrieves multiple values from cache with the specified keys.

init() method
public void init()

Initializes this application component.

This method is required by the IApplicationComponent interface. It ensures the existence of the cache DB table. It also removes expired data items from the cache.

setGCProbability() method (available since v1.0.9)
public void setGCProbability(integer $value)
$value integer the probability (parts per million) that garbage collection (GC) should be performed when storing a piece of data in the cache. Defaults to 100, meaning 0.01% chance. This number should be between 0 and 1000000. A value 0 meaning no GC will be performed at all.

setValue() method
protected boolean setValue(string $key, string $value, integer $expire)
$key string the key identifying the value to be cached
$value string the value to be cached
$expire integer the number of seconds in which the cached value will expire. 0 means never expire.
{return} boolean true if the value is successfully stored into cache, false otherwise

Stores a value identified by a key in cache. This is the implementation of the method declared in the parent class.
