The Object Cache property increases the speed of the program. Objects such as code, descriptions and windows that will be used on the client computer are stored in the object cache. This means that the client computer only needs to retrieve these objects once from the server, and then they will be stored in the object cache. The client computer must have enough memory to store the objects while they are being used in order to benefit from the object cache.
Running out of object cache (that is, setting too small a value) does not cause any problems. The total size of all the objects used in the standard application is approximately 20 MB. If you have enough memory, set the object cache to 20 MB. The size of the most important objects, such as the table descriptions, is 1 MB. You should therefore, as a minimum, set the object cache to 1 MB. The upper limit is 1 GB.
Click File, Database, Information to open the Database Information window and see how much space has been allocated in the Object Cache (KB) field. To change the amount of space allocated to the object cache, on the menu bar, click Tools, Options,and enter the setting in the Object Cache (KB) field.
Example: finsql.exe objectcache=10000
The property can only be used from the client.
