 Buffering TypesLocate this document in the navigation structure


The buffering type defines which table records are loaded into the buffer of the application server when a table record is accessed. The following buffering types exist:

  • Full buffering :

    The system loads all the records of the table into the buffer when one record of the table is accessed.

  • Generic buffering :

    When a record of the table is accessed, all the records having this record in the generic key fields (part of the table key that is left-justified, identified by specifying a number of key fields) are loaded into the buffer.

  • Single-record buffering :

    Only the records of a table that are really accessed are loaded into the buffer.
