.show table policy caching command

Show the table cache policy. To speed up queries, data is cached on processing nodes, SSD, or even in RAM. The cache policy allows your cluster to describe the data artifacts that it uses, so that more important data can take priority.


You must have at least Database User, Database Viewer, or Database Monitor permissions to run these commands. For more information, see role-based access control.
