Cache the Branch Approvee and the Trunk approvees (the transaction parents)


We want to cache data that helps us easily retrieve the parents for either validation or walks


We need to create the appropriate ViewModels before persisting to cache.
There should be an eviction policy similar to the TVM’s eviction policy. Evicted items should be weakly referenced.
We are handling immutable data here, so there is no concept of dirty
Before attempting to read data from the DB it must be first read from cache.
Flush to db upon shutdown

Implementation suggestions

Instead of performing getSaveBatch and then tangle.saveBatch go via the ViewModels. This way we can relevant caches.
The problem with this solution is that it will disable us from using the writeBatch feature of RocksDb…
As far as I can see, we will only be able to solve this problem after we refactor the DB.

Open Questions (optional)

Should we take this opportunity to cache anything else?
