The Cache File System

The Cache File System (CacheFSTM) can be used to improve performance of remote file systems or slow devices such as CD-ROM drives. When a file system is cached, the data read from the remote file system or CD-ROM is stored in a cache on the local system. See Chapter 37, The Cache File System (Tasks) for detailed information on setting up and administering CacheFS File Systems.
