The Data Integration Service uses data object caching to access pre-built logical data objects and virtual tables. Enable data object caching to increase performance for mappings, SQL data service queries, and web service requests that include logical data objects and virtual tables.
By default, the Data Integration Service extracts source data and builds required data objects when it runs a mapping, SQL data service query, or a web service request. When you enable data object caching, the Data Integration Service can use cached logical data objects and virtual tables.
Perform the following steps to configure data object caching for logical data objects and virtual tables in an application:
Configure the data object cache database connection in the cache properties for the Data Integration Service.
Enable caching in the properties of logical data objects or virtual tables in an application.
By default, the Data Object Cache Manager component of the Data Integration Service manages the cache tables for logical data objects and virtual tables in the data object cache database. When the Data Object Cache Manager manages the cache, it inserts all data into the cache tables with each refresh. If you want to incrementally update the cache tables, you can choose to manage the cache tables yourself using a database client or other external tool. After enabling data object caching, you can configure a logical data object or virtual table to use a user-managed cache table.
To use the Timestamp with Time Zone data type and to enable data object caching for IBM DB2 or for Microsoft SQL Server, set the date time format of the deployed mapping to the "YYYY-MM-DD HH24:MI:SS" format. The Data Integration Service writes the data up to seconds.
