Subject Re: L1 and L2cache.
Date Mon, 14 Nov 2011 17:23:34 GMT
Hi Kevin,

In my case the queries are going to the database as I disabled query cache.
The problem is after the query is executed, it still returns the old values based on the values
in L1cache.
I dont think the IgnoreChanges value is going to effect the L1cache.

For deleted rows I am not getting old values from L1cache but the problem is only for updated
rows where the updated values are not reflected in the L1cache.
So can this be considered a bug where when a query is executed against database it is supposed
to change the L1cache values(in case of stale data in cache) ?
