[OpenAFS] Disk cache on root filesystem / unclean shutdown
Thu, 15 Sep 2005 12:48:27 +0200
I have the feeling I will be shot for asking this, but here goes :)
I have my cache on my root filesystem, in /var/cache/openafs. It
works, but is it supported? It'd be nice if it was, because it allows
for a lot of flexibility in choosing the cache size.
Furthermore, (yes, you've seen it coming) I have had some problems
with my rootfs lately. I have the feeling these problems started from
the moment my afsd wasn't called for a clean shutdown before
rebooting. But this is just a feeling of course, the filesystem
problems may have been caused by something else. The nice side effect
was a lot of files in /usr/lib disappearing.
Running openafs-latest, I think was 1.3.86 when I started seeing the
problems (date was 1st of august). Rootfs is ext3, kernel is
linux-2.6.13-gentoo. Don't know if it's relevant, but during the
unclean shutdown /afs was unmounted, but "afsd -shutdown" wasn't
