Where can I find my cached results?
Within every Looker directory there's a
/looker/.cache directory which is where cached objects is actually stored (query results, internal objects, etc.) Check out this post to read more about this.
The internal database will have a
cache_index table that will have metadata that points to each entry within the
/looker/.cache directory. If something is stored on disk, then it'll have an entry in the
cache_index internal db table.
cache_index table, there's also a corresponding TTL (time to live) which will specify how long the objects are stored in cache.
The contents within the
/looker/cache directory are all encrypted via 256 bit encryption
