Property value

Type: Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPSiteCollectionPropertyCache
A SPSiteCollectionPropertyCache object.


The cache is stored in memory and will be emptied at the next process recycle. Cache entries may be removed during site deletion, but invalidation is not assured. A process recycle may be required to invalidate cached entries. Because the cache has no flush mechanism it is critical that only very small values are placed in the cache.
