DESCRIPTION

Disabled

No client caching.

Simple

Simple caching is the legacy caching mode. Performance may suffer when connected to data sources containing many sessions.

 

On a modification of data within a data source the server cache token is changed. When Remote Desktop Manager for Mac performs a refresh it will compare it's local cache token with the data source token.

Intelligent

Intelligent cache has the ability to handle many more sessions without experiencing performance degradation.

 

In the case of intelligent cache each modification performs a token update on the server. When Remote Desktop Manager for Mac performs a refresh action it will query the data source for any changes (delta) of changes to be applied client side since it last checked the data source. The delta of the changes is then sent to the application and applied locally.

 

When first opening the data source Remote Desktop Manager for Mac will loaded the session from the offline file then refresh to get the up-to date information.

 

Storage

You can then follow the path Application Support/com.devolutions.remotedesktopmanager select the pertaining database where you will find the offline.db file.

 

The file is a SQLite database encrypted using a non-portable computed key hash.
