does is it destroy all or destroy part of the cache w/c was updated?

if it destroys all the cache content would it make any difference on the
mysql cache... since the cache rebuilds it self everytime there is an
manipulation on the data?

im not trying to create hassle im just clearing some things.. : )

ill put Lighttpd into consideration...
