lru

Function

ArgDescriptionType
sizeSize of the LRU (default 1000)int64

Description

Creates an LRU object

A LRU is like a dict, except that older items are expired. It is useful to creating running lookup values without exceeding memory constraints.

An example of this query is maintaining lookups between Kernel objects and key names within the Windows Kernel Registry provider.

LET Cache <= lru()

SELECT *, EventData,
    get(item=Cache, field=EventData.KeyObject) AS KeyName
FROM watch_etw(guid="{70EB4F03-C1DE-4F73-A051-33D13D5413BD}")
WHERE if(
   condition=System.ID = 2,  -- KeyOpen event
   then=set(item=Cache,
            field=EventData.KeyObject,
            value=EventData.RelativeName),
   else=TRUE)

Note how set() can be used to add items to the cache and get() is used to retrieve items.
