I am trying to cache my data through all user sessions, i.e, cache the data on the server till the server goes off.
I am using the st.cache_data function, but i got confused about some topics:
Does st.cache_date (with default args) caches the data through all user sessions of that application? Example: if user1 loads the application and the cached function gets called for the first time, when user2 opens a new user session, does that function runs again or the cached data gets used for that user as well?
When looking the documentation, i saw a paremeter called “persist”. From my understanding, if i use the default value (“None”) the cache only applies for that user, as it does not get saved on the server. If i set persist=True, does the cache works for all users of that application until the application is on?
If it doesn’t what would be the difference between persist vs non-persist? And what would be the solution here, to use st.cache_resource?
If I have to rerun the cached function each day, then applying a current_date paremeter to this function is enough to achieve it? As the current_date changes, the args of the function will change and then the function is runned again?
Thanks in advance!
