Defines an interface for cache implementations.

All cache implementations have to implement this interface. Drupal\Core\Cache\DatabaseBackend provides the default implementation, which can be consulted as an example.

The cache indentifiers are case sensitive.

  /**
   * Stores data in the persistent cache.
   *
   * Core cache implementations set the created time on cache item with
   * microtime(TRUE) rather than REQUEST_TIME_FLOAT, because the created time
   * of cache items should match when they are created, not when the request
   * started. Apart from being more accurate, this increases the chance an
   * item will legitimately be considered valid.
   *
   * @param string $cid
   *   The cache ID of the data to store.
   * @param mixed $data
   *   The data to store in the cache.
   *   Some storage engines only allow objects up to a maximum of 1MB in size to
   *   be stored by default. When caching large arrays or similar, take care to
   *   ensure $data does not exceed this size.
   * @param int $expire
   *   One of the following values:
   *   - CacheBackendInterface::CACHE_PERMANENT: Indicates that the item should
   *     not be removed unless it is deleted explicitly.
   *   - A Unix timestamp: Indicates that the item will be considered invalid
   *     after this time, i.e. it will not be returned by get() unless
   *     $allow_invalid has been set to TRUE. When the item has expired, it may
   *     be permanently deleted by the garbage collector at any time.
   * @param array $tags
   *   An array of tags to be stored with the cache item. These should normally
   *   identify objects used to build the cache item, which should trigger
   *   cache invalidation when updated. For example if a cached item represents
   *   a node, both the node ID and the author's user ID might be passed in as
   *   tags. For example array('node' => array(123), 'user' => array(92)).
