Gets or sets the lifetime of the approximate message count cache.

Namespace: Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient
Assembly: Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient (in Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient.dll)


[ObsoleteAttribute("The approximate message count cache is obsolete. Use FetchAttributes to refresh the approximate message count as needed.")] 
public TimeSpan ApproximateMessageCountCacheLength { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.TimeSpan

The lifetime of the approximate message count cache.

This method is obsolete. Use FetchAttributes instead.

This value determines how often the cache for the queue's approximate message count is refreshed. By default the lifetime of the cache is TimeSpan.Zero, and the approximate message count value is updated from the service each time the RetrieveApproximateMessageCount method is called.

Setting this value to a non-zero TimeSpan can improve performance if you are checking the approximate message count value frequently.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
