The stupidest thing I ever saw a developer do

So this story comes up quite a lot – this is the stupidest thing I ever saw a developer do.

cache write through and write back

Write-through(直写模式)在数据更新时,同时写入缓存Cache和后端存储。此模式的优点是操作简单;缺点是因为数据修改需要同时写入存储,数据写入速度较慢。

Write-back(回写模式)在数据更新时只写入缓存Cache。只在数据被替换出缓存时,被修改的缓存数据才会被写到后端存储。此模式的优点是数据写入速度快,因为不需要写存储;缺点是一旦更新后的数据未被写入存储时出现系统掉电的情况,数据将无法找回。
