NAME

       fs_setcachesize - Sets the size of the disk cache

SYNOPSIS

       fs setcachesize [-blocks <size (0 = reset)>>] [-reset] [-help]

       fs setca [-b <size (0 = reset)>>] [-r] [-h]

       fs cachesize [-b <size (0 = reset)>>] [-r] [-h]

       fs ca [-b <size (0 = reset)>>] [-r] [-h]

DESCRIPTION

       The fs setcachesize command changes the number of kilobyte blocks of local disk space
       available to the Cache Manager for its data cache, on machines that use a disk cache. The
       command is not operative on machines that use a memory cache.

       To return the cache size to the default value specified in the third field of the local
       /etc/openafs/cacheinfo file, provide a value of 0 to the -blocks argument.

       To return the cache size to the value set when the machine was last rebooted, use the
       -reset flag instead of the -blocks argument. This is normally the amount specified in the
       cacheinfo file, unless the -blocks argument was included on the afsd command to override
       the cacheinfo value.

       To display the current cache size and amount of cache in use, for both disk and memory
       caches, use the fs getcacheparms command.

CAUTIONS

       This command is not operative on machines using a memory cache, and results in an error
       message. To change memory cache size, edit the cacheinfo file and reboot, or reboot and
       provide the -blocks argument to the afsd command.

       On machines using a disk cache, do not set the cache size to exceed 85% to 90% of the
       actual disk space available for the cache directory. The cache implementation itself
       requires a small amount of space on the partition.

OPTIONS

       -blocks <size>
           Specifies the amount of disk space available for the Cache Manager to devote to the
           cache.  The size should be a positive integer followed by an optional suffix: "K" for
           kibibytes (1024 bytes, the default), "M" for mebibytes (1024 kibibytes), "G" for
           gibibytes (1024 mebibytes), and "T" for tebibytes (1024 gibibytes).  Provide a value
           of 0 to set cache size to the default specified in the cacheinfo file.

       -reset
           Returns the cache size to the value set when the machine was last booted. This agrees
           with the value in the cacheinfo file unless the -blocks argument was used on the afsd
           command.

       -help
           Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.

EXAMPLES

       The following command sets the disk cache size to 25000 kilobyte blocks.

          % fs setcachesize -blocks 25000

       Both of the following commands reset the disk cache size to the value in the cacheinfo
       file, assuming that the -blocks argument to the afsd command was not used.

          % fs setcachesize -blocks 0
          % fs setcachesize -reset
