Cache question: does
--no-local-cache
give me the same effect as using the
@_uncacheable_rule
decorator on my rules? (when not using remote execution)
Followup question. Is it only process executions that are cached between runs?
As I can’t seem to make sense of the various combinations of
--[no-]local-cache
and
@rule
as it seems to always run my rules every time, so there’s no inter-process caching. But it does memoize my rules, even if I use
@_uncacheable_rule
.. which I would’ve expected it not to, I think…
(this is tinkering with embedded use of Pants, but I think this behaviour would match regular use too)
AAhh.. OK, I found that when using a new scheduler session,
@_uncacheable_rule
is re-run then, but regular
@rule
is not. So the caching for rules is between sessions, where as all rules are always memoized for within a single session.
And none of this seems to be affected by the
--local-cache
option..
