Auto resizing Hashtable RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to have a HashTable that automatically removes the oldest accessed element from the list? I'm trying to build a validation cache but I'm concerned about the possibility that I could be bombarded with requests and my Hashtable getting too big in memory. I looked into the size, but sounds like the cache automatically doubles in size when the treshold is reached.

    Is there a better way to maintain a cache in memory? My table would be pretty simple, storing a string and a bool against it. Any other ideas?
