Values Written



You can use the CSFWriteEvents component with the CacheManager Object to save event information in the database for later adjustment of advertising and other campaign schedules.

When run by the CacheManager object, the CSFWriteEvents component uses two pipeline dictionaries (Order and Context) to determine how to run and how to return information to the CacheManager object.

The CSFWriteEvents component first opens a connection to the database. It then writes the event data to the database using information stored in the Performance dictionary.


See the example in CacheManager Object.
