Caching performance improvements
We have released a few changes in how we cache API requests in the CDN that will produce a significant improvement in the overall performance of the platform; specifically applying to Builder maps and applications developed using our APIs. Learn more about such changes in our documentation for developers at api-docs.carto.com; each end-point in Maps API and SQL API now contains a reference about our caching strategies.
In Builder, users have new a couple of new features:
- “Refresh data source”: to make sure users get non-cached versions of the data. Note that with this option your map will be skipping the CDN and getting the data each time from your data warehouse.
- “Refresh data source every X”: to allow the user to control the update frequency of the data displayed on public maps.
