Is the MySQL table for BP Activity cached into memory?

    The buddypress table for activity is called wp_bp_activity_user_activity_cached.

    What does “cached” mean in this sense?

    Does that mean the entire table is cached into the RAM of the computer?

    What does this mean for future scalability of Buddypress sites (e.g. if there is a lot of activity, will this have to be changed)?

    AFAIK BuddyPress uses that table to avoid running multiple query each time a page with activity stream is called. I also think that is limited to a maximum of n entries so it won’t explode…

    Ok. So do you know if the table is kept stored somewhere else besides the MySQL table. e.g. is it kept in WordPress Object Cache?

    Thanks!
