Access to Client-Side Features
NCache contains rich features for the client side and NCache Live gives you access to these features. These features include but are not limited to:
Code snippets for each feature are provided to you which you can run inside the code window. These snippets are well written with comments provided and exceptions handled. Not only that but, you can also type in your own code in the provided window and run it against the 2-node cache cluster provided to you.
Also, NCache Live sessions are configured to expire after 10 minutes of idle activity. When this happens or when you click on the sign-out button, the cache is restarted and hence cleaned. A new cache is assigned to you upon using NCache Live again.
NCache Live is powered by Try .NET which is an embeddable code runner that enables you to explore .NET in the browser.
Realtime Monitoring of Results
The NCache Web Monitor and the NCache Web Manger are powerful and versatile web-based applications through which you can manage and monitor your NCache cache clusters. NCache Live provides you with a read-only version of both. A window of NCache Web Monitor is placed right next to the code window that gives you the capability to run your code or the code samples and see the effect it has on the cache in real-time. You can also access the Web Manager through this window.
For example, you run the code sample for absolute expiration and observe how the cache count increases initially. Then after a brief interval this count decreases, indicating how the data was initially inserted into the cache and was then expired and removed accordingly.
Figure 2 shows how the code snippet for update (updating data in cache) is selected and then executed. After this the affects on the cache are displayed via the Web Monitor window.
