LDAPRoleExtender - Caches: View Cached Users

    Description

        This view shows the cache of currently authenticated users.

    Elements

        'Purge All caches' -- This will purge all caches inside the LDAPRoleExtender.
        This includes the cache of currently authenticated users, the log and any cached
        username lists. 

        'Cached users' -- These are the users in the cache of currently
        authenticated users. Anonymous users will not show up in this view.

        Every time an authenticated user makes a request to Zope, 
        the username and password are verified. Depending on site traffic 
        and number of users that log in through the LDAPRoleExtender this
        process can happen several times a second. Since a lookup on the 
        LDAP Server can be quite slow, the product will cache the user 
        information for 10 minutes. This is the duration of a typical session.
