Description jcpunk 2013-09-23 12:10:35 EDT
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
2. reboot
3. watch as cachefilesd performs lots of disk I/O

Actual results:
extremely slow boot

Expected results:
cache verification in the background?
