A very good introduction to the hidden featuer cachefs in Solaris

This week a red about very interesting feature in Solaris ( available since a long time ).


I found it on the blog of Jörg Moellenkamp.

Here is the link to the cachefs entry.

It allows to localy cache the content of a NFSv3 remote filesystem on the local machine.
There is an automatic check of the metadata, if the file changed on the remote systems.
This automatic check can also be controlled to issue it just when needed.
