Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1011119
Very long startup with cachefilesd
Last modified: 2017-12-06 05:17:56 EST
Description of problem:
With cachefilesd enabled my boot time jumped from about 4min to about 45 minutes. The daemon seems to be verifing the content of my cache, but in doing so it initially caused me to think the system hung on boot.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):cachefilesd-0.10.2-1.el6.x86_64
How reproducible: 100%
Steps to Reproduce:
1. cache about 45G of NFS data
3. watch as cachefilesd performs lots of disk I/O
extremely slow boot
cache verification in the background?
