[OpenAFS] dynamic allocation of vcaches
Tue, 10 Feb 2009 20:48:22 -0500
We have a patch (in RT 124344) for adding support to Linux for dynamic
allocation of vcaches rather than the current hard limit provided by
the -stat flag to afsd. It currently does not have a command-line
argument to turn it on (i.e., if the patch is applied, you get dynamic
support), and I want to make sure the interface we provide is a
reasonable one. I propose:
afsd -stat <N> -dynamic-vcaches
where N would be the initial value of the number of vcache entries but
that the cache manager could dynamically allocate as many as needed).
Any concerns with that feature and interface?
