NAME ^

CHI::Driver::FastMmap - Persistent interprocess cache via mmap'ed files

VERSION ^

version 0.58

SYNOPSIS ^

    use CHI;

    my $cache = CHI->new(
        driver     => 'FastMmap',
        root_dir   => '/path/to/cache/root',
        cache_size => '1m'
    );

DESCRIPTION ^

This cache driver uses Cache::FastMmap to store data in an mmap'ed file. It is very fast, and can be used to share data between processes on a single host, though not between hosts.

To support namespaces, this driver takes a directory parameter rather than a file, and creates one Cache::FastMMap file for each namespace.

Because CHI handles serialization automatically, we pass the raw_values flag as 1; and to conform to the CHI API, we pass unlink_on_exit as 0, so that all cache files are permanent.

REQUIREMENTS ^

You will need to install Cache::FastMmap from CPAN to use this driver.

CONSTRUCTOR OPTIONS ^

root_dir

Path to the directory that will contain the share files, one per namespace. Defaults to a directory called 'chi-driver-fastmmap' under the OS default temp directory (e.g. '/tmp' on UNIX).

dir_create_mode

Permissions mode to use when creating directories. Defaults to 0775.

Any other constructor options not recognized by CHI are passed along to Cache::FastMmap->new.

METHODS ^

fm_cache

Returns a handle to the underlying Cache::FastMmap object. You can use this to call FastMmap-specific methods that are not supported by the general API, e.g.

    $self->fm_cache->get_and_set("key", sub { ... });
