CACHEINFO(5)		      AFS File Reference		  CACHEINFO(5)

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
       /usr/local/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
