Filtered Source Cache Properties Dialog Box

Getting there

Use this dialog box to set caching options for your local sources.

The options are as follows:

Cache parent directory (enables update caching for this source)

Enter or browse to the directory where you want to store the local source cache files.

Enterprise Server will create a subdirectory with the name of the local source, and that subdirectory will contain the cached audit files.

When tracking, read cached files

This setting is enabled when a directory appears in the parent directory field.

Note: If Never or If available is selected for the local source and its cache is exhausted, Enterprise Server searches for additional updates in the original MCP-based audit files.


If available

This setting causes Enterprise Server to rely on audit files that have been previously cached. When all of the available cache for the local source and its base source has been processed by the client, Enterprise Server queries the host for more audit information.



This setting causes Enterprise Server to rely exclusively on the cached audit files for the local source, and clients will not progress further than the Enterprise Server stored cache. This setting can prevent clients from adding to mainframe load by making them use only the Enterprise Server capacity.



This setting causes Enterprise Server to ignore any cached audit files for the local source. This is useful for testing access to non-cached audit files.

As user

Enter the user account that Enterprise Server will use when reading cached files. Use this setting when accessing cache files using Windows authentication.

If the user account is not specified, Enterprise Server will try to access the cache files using the LOCALSYSTEM account, which may not be permitted.


Enter the password for the specified user.

Remove cache files when read n times

Enter the number of DATABridge Clients who will access this cached source. After the cache has been read that number of times, it is automatically deleted.

If you enter 0, Enterprise Server will not remove any cached audit files.
