An approximation would be fine for my needs, but it would need to persist between sessions. My main purpose is to determine how out of date (days time frame) some symbol translation data that I am storing in the persistent dictionary is.
I do a periodic batch update from data downloaded over the web. The process is expensive time wise and updates don't happen terribly often. I only do the process once the data is X days out of date.
The row level timestamps can certainly be implemented directly in code, but in this case I don't need that. I would prefer to not have to iterate over the entire data set to figure out what the oldest timestamp is. I could just create some form
of persistent date variable, but I would like to avoid any additional persistence layers if possible. Your ManagedESENT does great for all my needs. This would just round off the functionality for me.
I am happy to talk in more detail if it would help. Once again, thanks for the effort you are putting into this. It is a VERY useful tool I find myself using more and more often.
