CF Dude, What's in the cache?

Microservices! They are everywhere, or at least, the term is. When should you use a microservice architecture? What factors should be considered when making that decision? Do the benefits outweigh the costs? Why is everyone so excited about them, anyway?  Brought to you in partnership with IBM.

Over the weekend I needed to see what was in my cache. I whipped up a quick script to list everything in cache and from there:

  • be able to remove an item
  • view the content of an item (limited to top 10 records)
  • view the metadata of an item.
I've included the code below.
writeOutput('<h2>CF Dude, What''s in the cache?</h2><div><a href="#cgi.script_name#">Reload</a><br><br></div>');

param name="url.do" default="";

switch (url.do) {
    case "remove":
        writeOutput("<div style='color: green; font-weight: bold'>Removed #url.item#</div>");
    case "view":
        writeDump( var=cacheGet(url.item), label="Cache contents of: " & url.item, top=10 );
    case "meta":
        writeDump( var=cacheGetMetadata(url.item), label="Metadata for: " & url.item );

incache = cacheGetAllIds();

<h3>Cache IDs</h3>

            <td><a href="#cgi.script_name#?do=view&item=#c#">view</a></td>
            <td><a href="#cgi.script_name#?do=meta&item=#c#">meta</a></td>
