NAME

       cacheinfo - Defines configuration parameters for the Cache Manager

DESCRIPTION

       The cacheinfo file defines configuration parameters for the Cache Manager, which reads the
       file as it initializes.

       The file contains a single line of ASCII text and must reside in the /etc/openafs
       directory. Use a text editor to create it during initial configuration of the client
       machine; the required format is as follows:

          <mount>:<cache>:<size>

       where

       <mount>
           Names the local disk directory at which the Cache Manager mounts the AFS namespace. It
           must exist before the afsd program runs. The conventional value is /afs. Using any
           other value prevents traversal of pathnames that begin with /afs (such as pathnames to
           files in foreign cells that do use the conventional name).  The -mountdir argument to
           the afsd command overrides this value.

       <cache>
           Names the local disk directory to use as a cache. It must exist before the afsd
           program runs. The standard value is /usr/vice/cache, but it is acceptable to
           substitute a directory on a partition with more available space. Although the Cache
           Manager ignores this field when configuring a memory cache, a value must always appear
           in it. The -cachedir argument to the afsd command overrides this value.

       <size>
           Specifies the cache size as a number of 1-kilobyte blocks. Larger caches generally
           yield better performance, but a disk cache must not exceed 90% of the space available
           on the cache partition (85% for AIX systems), and a memory cache must use no more than
           25% of available machine memory.

           The -blocks argument to the afsd command overrides this value. To reset cache size
           without rebooting on a machine that uses disk caching, use the fs setcachesize
           command. To display the current size of a disk or memory cache between reboots, use
           the fs getcacheparms command.

EXAMPLES

       The following example cacheinfo file mounts the AFS namespace at /afs, establishes a disk
       cache in the /usr/vice/cache directory, and defines cache size as 50,000 1-kilobyte
       blocks.

          /afs:/usr/vice/cache:50000
