ENSTEMP was addressed already some time ago; 
Article: Preventing Globals From Getting Journaled (Continued from How do I Minimize My Journals)

and is also in public documentation
Where InterSystems IRIS Stores Temporary Production Data

Though I'd like to understand if this is just naming a non-journaled DB
or are there also typical features of CACHETEMP / IRISTEMP related to it:

  • automatic clean-up at system startup 
  • keeping Global Buffers in memory as long as possible
  • late writing to the storage file 

In other words is it a 2nd, 3rd, .. fully feature blown IRISTEMP  ?

IRIS offers Durable %SYS Directory as a highly useful feature for working with containers.

Before inventing the wheel once more I'd like to know if a similar feature also exists for Caché / Ensemble.
Official documentation is quite silent about.
Though I have some names in mind that might know more about   ( @Luca Ravazzolo @Dmitry Maslennikov  ?     @Eduard Lebedyuk ?  )

The code of %Z.obj is available on Open Exchange.

During testing your code you are are often confronted with the need to examine
the actual content of an object. Either using ZWRITE or $system.OBJ.Dump()
you get a picture of simple properties as "--- attribute values ---"
while "--- swizzled references ---" are more confusing than informative
and with "--- calculated references ---" you are just left in the lurch.

This example is extracted from a long-running installation. The purpose is to have a simple monitoring of several servers at a rather primitive level. Just slightly more intelligent than a raw PING. But still easy to integrate. It avoids the overkill of information you are often confronted with while you are just interested in the number of active process or similar basic figures.

The code is available for you on Open Exchange too.

 For Data Synchronization inside Caché you have a range of ways to synchronize objects and tables.
At DB level you can use Shadowing  or Mirroring 

This works excellent and if you need just a part of your data to be synchronized you may split your
data into smaller pieces using Global mapping 
Or if you need bi-directional synchronization on Class/Table level you can use the Object Synchronization Feature 


The limit of all these excellent features:
They just work from Caché/IRIS to Caché/IRIS.
