My laptop and the network of computers I work with have Redhat 6.2. (But we can upgrade to Redat 7.2 if necessary.) I was wondering if the NFS clients are caching? I am in the process of writing a distributed application and it would be really nice if Linux cached the disk reads locally.. save me a ton of work writing my own cache manager.
Anyone know or have an idea of where to look for the answer? I tried google and redhat.com with search words like: "linux nfs cache" with no luck. No mention of NFS caching in the official Linux kernel.. but then that doens't mean it isn't there...
