iiiiiChapter 2 Using the ILS Database

This chapter lists all the database fields for the ILS database. The ILS database is stored in RAM on the Web server. Each listing contains information about one person, and one real-time communications application that the person has available for connecting with other users. If a person has multiple applications, there will be multiple listings for that person.

In order to minimize memory use, the ILS database only stores attributes that are explicitly set.
