Smart Cache Management

What's cache?

A cache is a place to store something temporarily. Caching is mostly used to improve application experiences: shorten data access time and reduce latency.

Lima uses cache to improve its performance and make your data accessible much faster.

What is the difference between cache and the offline mode?

When Lima is caching your files, it doesn't make you choose which files: it generally caches the more recent added files, or the more used ones.

The offline mode enables you to keep files that you choose offline: those files will therefore be accessible anytime even without an Internet connection.

Even so your Lima is offline, it had stored files in the cache during transfer: those files are therefore stored in the local memory of your device, before they got cleared up, which make them accessible.

 

How do I manage cache size?

You can change at any time the maximum cache size from the Advanced Settings of your Lima application. It determines how much local storage Lima can use for its smart cache on the device.

 

Start managing your cache by taking the following steps for Computer, Android and iOS:

 

Computer

1. Open your Lima preferences from the Lima menu in your taskbar.

2. Go to the “Settings” Tab.

3. From there, click on “Advanced settings” in the “Lima” section.

4. Choose the maximum cache size you want. By default, Smart cache can use up to 10% of free disk space. But you can also adjust this amount by swiping cursor from 10 GB to the maximum size available on your Lima drive.
