Administering cache

You can modify settings in the profiles-config.xml file to configure the full report-to and object caches for Profiles. Use Profiles administrative commands when you want to enable, disable, or reload the full report-to chain cache.

Profiles can display organizational structure information using report-to cache settings. These settings determine how the cache that is used to store the full-report-to data is configured. For performance reasons, this cache is used to present report-chain information rather than accessing the corporate directory. If the cache is disabled, the reporting structure information is still available, but it displays more slowly.

Profiles uses the object cache to store auxiliary table information, including department, organization, work location, employee type, and country code display values. You can configure settings to specify when the cache is refreshed, and to define the refresh interval and start delay.
