FS-Cache is ready for testing as a RHEL6 tech preview item.

Comment 9 Mike Gahagan 2010-09-24 19:51:09 UTC
Confirmed cachefilesd is functional with an NFS file system (mounted with the cfs option). Once files appeared in the cache, they were compared with files on the nfs repository and found to contain the same data.
