CFileCache provides a file-based caching mechanism.

For each data value being cached, CFileCache will use store it in a separate file under cachePath which defaults to 'protected/runtime/cache'. CFileCache will perform garbage collection automatically to remove expired cache files.

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

Property Details

cacheFileSuffix property
public string $cacheFileSuffix;

cache file suffix. Defaults to '.bin'.

cachePath property
public string $cachePath;

the directory to store cache files. Defaults to null, meaning using 'protected/runtime/cache' as the directory.

directoryLevel property
public integer $directoryLevel;

the level of sub-directories to store cache files. Defaults to 0, meaning no sub-directories. If the system has huge number of cache files (e.g. 10K+), you may want to set this value to be 1 or 2 so that the file system is not over burdened. The value of this property should not exceed 16 (less than 3 is recommended).

gCProbability property
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

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.

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
protected void gc(boolean $expiredOnly=true, string $path=NULL)
$expiredOnly boolean whether to removed expired cache files only. If true, all cache files under cachePath will be removed.
$path string the path to clean with. If null, it will be cachePath.

Removes expired cache files.

getCacheFile() method
protected string getCacheFile(string $key)
$key string cache key
{return} string the cache file path

Returns the cache file path given the cache key.

getGCProbability() method
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.

init() method
public void init()

Initializes this application component. This method is required by the IApplicationComponent interface. It checks the availability of memcache.

setGCProbability() method
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.
